Light and gentle as a little girl's kiss. Named for my Granddaughter, Kirtana Maureen, these treats are intended for diabetics. But everyone seems to love them.

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
0.75 cup egg whites; room temperature
0.25 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
0.25 cup Splenda
2 drops red food coloring
1 teaspoon almond extract
0.75 cup Unsweetened coconut; shredded

Original recipe makes 32

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Place the eggs whites in a glass mixing bowl with salt. Beat until the whites are stiff. Slowly add 1/4 cup of Splenda beating constantly. Mix in food coloring, almond extract and coconut using a slow deliberate mix to avoid deflating the mixture.

Drop the mixture from a teaspoon onto a greased and well- floured baking sheet. Bake about 30 minutes. Turn oven off and let kisses continue to sit in oven for 1 1/2 hours.

While the original recipe called for almond extract, there's no reason you couldn't use other flavors such as peppermint, cinnamon, cocoa, or orange zest. Just remember to go easy on the flavoring as these should be a delicately flavored treat.

Notes

I came up with this while looking for an alternative to sugar-free chocolate as an after dinner treat. My daughter loved meringue when she was little also.

I thought that I would give these meringues a try since they would be classified with diabetic-friendly and gluten-free. The only reason I may try these again is with major modifications. The sugar in meringues is what holds them stable. They ended up turning into sticky globs that burned in the first 10 minutes of baking time, even with reduced temperature.

The ingredients say 1/4 cup Splenda, but the instructions says 1 cup. Which should it be? 1/4 cup it is, then. Thanks for updating the recipe.
