I tried these meringues because I'm dieting and wanted a sweet treat with minimal calories and fat. They are DELICIOUS! I also found them very easy to make. I did not have any cream of tartar in the house, so I doubled the recipe and used 1/4 teaspoon white vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. I only used about 1/8 teaspoon of almond extract, even for a double recipe. They were perfect - there was a tiny, tiny hint of almond, but it was not overpowering for these delicate cookies. The coconut was a wonderful addition of texture and flavor. I will definitely be making these again, and I suspect they will be a go-to diet dessert on many occasions!
