Angel Bites

Ingredients

  • 5 large egg whites
  • 1/3 cup SPLENDA® Granular
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Citrus Filling.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F (175 °C)
  2. Lightly oil a 13 x 11-inch baking sheet. Set aside.
  3. Separate egg whites from yolk. Discard yolk. Place egg whites in a medium sized bowl. Whip on high speed using an electric beater or wire whisk until frothy.
  4. Add SPLENDA® Granular, vanilla extract and salt. Mix until stiff peaks form (about 20 to 30 seconds on high speed with an electric mixer).
  5. Spoon slightly rounded tablespoons of egg whites onto prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake in oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan.
  7. Sandwich Angel Bites with filling. Place filling on the bottom of one Angel Bite and top with another so that the bottoms of the 6- Angel Bites are facing each other and the filling is sandwiched between them. Repeat to make 3 filled Angel Bites per serving (using 6 unfilled bites).

Ingredients

  • Juice from 2 oranges (approximately 1/2 cup)
  • Juice from 2 lemons (approximately 1/4 cup)

Directions

  1. Juice oranges and lemons to make approximately 3/4 cup of juice.

  3. Pour into a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Chill until ready to use.
  5. Garnish Angel Bites with a dollop of whipped cream, some orange zest and a sprig of mint.
