Lemon Meringue Cookies

© "From Ellie's Kitchen to Yours"
3 egg whites
½ tsp cream of tartar
1 C sugar
1 T lemon rind, grated
Nonstick cooking spray

Beat egg whites until foamy and add cream of tartar. Gradually beat in sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, until stiff glossy peaks form. Fold in lemon rind. Drop by teaspoon onto baking sheets that have been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 275° for 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
Yield: 5 to 6 dozen

Hint: These delicious cookies have no fat or cholesterol and contain approximately 35 calories each. The lemon imparts a wonderful flavor. These make a wonderful gift for someone who is on a very restricted low fat or fat free diet. To achieve maximum volume from the egg whites, they should be at room temperature when beaten.
