When you started Atkins (or another lower-carb program, or gluten-free plan), you probably fell –swooning across your fainting couch– and lamented how austere life would be minus those foods and little indulgences you thought you would forever be without since nixing the sugar and the flour from your life.
Well, ha, I say!
Ha! And ha again!
babydollsea, with her grandmother’s pizzelle (Italian waffle cookie) maker, has put oopsie rolls to the test, yet again.
Two delicious variations on the oopsie theme.
3 eggs, separated
3 ounces cream cheese
1 packet Splenda
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
With a mixer, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese with yolks and Splenda until just blended. Gently fold mixture into whites.
Pour into pizzelle form and bake.
