I've recently been placed on a temporary low sodium diet. I'm also trying to lose weight. A recipe for meringue cookies was featured at the Weight Watcher's site today, and I remembered eating them as a child. We called them Forgotten Kisses. I figured the sodium to be quite low, and so wanting a treat, I decided I wanted to make them. But the recipe there calls for baking them at 200 for three hours! I didn't want to wait three hours so I searched here and found this recipe which is very close to the one at the WW site. I did make a couple changes so I could get a lower sodium count, and because I didn't have anything peppermint on hand. I did not put any salt in, and increased the vinegar to 1/4 tsp. I also added 1 tsp vanilla, 2 T unsweetened cocoa powder, and 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips. I only baked them for an hour and they were ready to come out. They are a wonderful way to get that chocolate fix. I only got 14 cookies, so the submitter must make them quite small. I figured each cookie to be 52 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, .5 gram of fiber, and 8 mg of sodium. I remember making these lemon flavor as well growing up and they were delicious.
