This Recipe for Lemon Meringue Cookies is from Good Morning America's "Cut the Calories Cookbook" and makes about two dozen cookies.

Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, finely grated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with baking parchment and set aside.

    Beat egg whites and salt in small bowl at high electric-mixer speed until frothy. With mixer still at high speed, add sugar gradually and continue beating until meringue peaks stiffly (about 4 minutes). Beat in vanilla, then by hand fold in lemon zest.

    Drop meringue from rounded teaspoon onto prepared baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Set in oven, immediately turn oven off, and let cookies remain in the oven for 2 hours (you can leave them in overnight)

    Peel meringue off parchment and store in airtight container.
