Reviews of Nancy's Forgotten Cookies, Low-Carb Version

Would make this again.
i dont get it.
we are only using egg whites, splenda, vanilla and how is the result not watery and runny? there is no ingredient to thicken it up..

please help as i would like to make these

RESPONSE: They are a traditional meringue cookie. You beat them into meringue and then they cook for a long time at a slow temperature and become crispy. See the Wikipedia article on meringues: Meringue.

I've made different low carb cookie recipes before, this one is by far the tastiest. My yield was about 20 cookies and I used a very dark chocolate with 5 net carbs per quarter cup. Each cookie had approx. 1.3 net carbs. The cookies do not spread at all so next time I will roll them by hand and flatten instead of dropping them. Since this cookie is essentially nut and chocolate suspended in a slow-cooking meringue, you could do lots of variations. I'm thinking orange-walnut-cranberry for next time. I'm also wondering if the Splenda/Diabetisweet is necessary as a bulking agent or if you could substitute a no-carb sweetener like liquid sucralose or stevia, which would cut out 16 carbs if your using Splenda granular and lots of sugar alcohols if your using the Diabetisweet. 4 stars

I make a very similar cooky that I adapted from the Chocolate Meringue cookies my mom used to make. I do not put in nuts and sometimes substitute different flavorings for the vanilla - strawberry, cherry, lemon, wintergreen. I also use food coloring - red, green, yellow, blue, whatever.
I am diabetic and this is a very nice treat any time of the year.

I used unsweetened chocolate squares that I chopped and was exteremely pleased with results. My husband even liked the cookies and he is a cake, cookie, and sweet treat fanatic. 5 stars

I really loved these, as did the rest of my family. We'll be making them again this Christmas for sure. 5 stars

The cookies are quite good, however, in a forgotten cookie, it is a firm belief of mine that you need to have at least SOME regular sugar just for taste. Although the Splenda or other sugar substitutes are good for some products, in forgotten cookies it, to me, tastes like a sugar substitue cookie, and not a sweet treat for the holidays. 4 stars
