I love to bake, but baking can be an expensive hobby. When I'm especially strapped, I make meringues. Meringues are a cheap (and VERY low fat) delicious treat. Only egg whites and confectioners sugar are needed. You can create any shape with them and you can spice them up by dipping them in melted chocolate once they are baked. It only costs about $2 to make 50 of these treats. Add another $2 or so if you use chocolate.

A wonderfully light, easy, low calorie Christmas treat to make.
Total Time: 2 hours, including cool time
Yield: 5 dozen
*You may want to half the recipe if you don't have enough sheets. These need to bake all in one batch.
This page contains an egg-free meringues recipes. When the price of eggs becomes prohibitive, you might want to try this unique substitution for the egg whites.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. In large bowl with electric mixer, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt until foamy. Gradually add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form. Fold in mini chocolate pieces.
Lightly grease baking sheet or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls one inch apart onto prepared sheet. Bake 20 minutes or until just lightly golden. Let cool slightly on sheet; remove to wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining meringue. Makes 4 dozen.
