ghost meringue

I saw these cute treats from Parenting.com.  Clara loved them.  She ate all of them up before I could even pack them for her school snack.  I think it was more because of the fun shape than the taste, but the taste was good too because of the fresh lemon juice.  The texture turned out to be more marshmallowy than crunchy meringue cookies.

Ingredinets

1 (35g) egg white

pinch (0.1g) cream of tartar

pinch (0.1g) salt

1t (4g) Truvia

1/4t (2g) fresh lemon juice (if you don’t have it, you can leave it out or add alcohol-free vanilla flavor)

12-14 freeze dried blueberries (or chocolate chips you are allowed to use)
