What greater pleasure than a mouth-watering dessert that isn't so laden with calories that you cringe when you climb on the scale the next day?
Basically, you make meringue by beating together room temperature egg whites and sugar in either a crystalline or syrup form.
1/2 cup egg whites (about 4 large eggs)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 300-degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment or wax paper.
With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt on high speed until soft peaks form. Continue mixing on high speed while adding 1/2-cup of the sugar. Add the remaining sugar by the tablespoon. Beat for another one to two minutes, until the mixture is stiff and shiny.
Drop by the spoonful onto the cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle the meringues evenly with the chopped walnuts.
Bake until pale golden, about 30 minutes. Let cool.
