Makes 6 servings.

Ingredients:

5 large egg whites
⅓ cup SPLENDA® Granular
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a 13 x 11-inch baking sheet. Set aside.
2. 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.
3. Add SPLENDA® Granular, vanilla extract and salt. Mix until stiff peaks form (about 20 to 30 seconds on high speed with an electric mixer).
4. Spoon slightly rounded tablespoons of egg whites onto prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan.
5. Sandwich Angel Bites with filling of choice. 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).
