Lemon Meringue Cookies

For Step 3 of the ITG Diet Plan



For 4 people ()


  • 1 Packet Knox Unflavored Gelatine
  • 1 Packet Unsweetened Kool-Aid Lemonade
  • 0.5 cup(s) Stevia in the Raw Powder
  • 8 Egg Whites (room temperature)
  • 0.25 teaspoon(s) Cream of Tartar
  • 0.25 teaspoon(s) Sea Salt

Lemon Meringue Cookies Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cut off a tiny corner of a gallon-size resealable plastic bag.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the gelatin, lemonade dry mix and the Stevia. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer beat the egg whites with cream of tartar and sea salt until stiff peaks form. As you beat the egg whites, gradually add the gelatin mixture, about 1 tablespoon at a time. Spoon the fluffy mixture into the prepared plastic bag, and gently squeeze and twist the bag to force the meringue mixture to the tip. (Do not seal bag, so that air can escape.)
  4. Squeeze the bag to place dollops of meringue mixture about 2-3 inches tall onto the parchment paper.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are set and dry, about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Do not open oven door while baking. At end of baking time, turn off oven, open oven door, and allow the cookies to slowly cool in the oven or if you are like me and can’t wait, cool them on a cookie rack!! Store the cookies in an airtight container. Makes 30 cookies:  5 cookies equals 34 calories, and 0 fat, 2 carbohydrates, 2 sugars (YES there are carbs and sugar in stevia) and 6 grams protein!!
