Testimony of the Day
“Hi Maria! I just wanted to show you a quick update after being on your diet for 5 days!! I’ve attached a before and after picture. My itchy, rashy legs have always looked their worse when i’m in a bath or shower; they are always there, but something about the hot water would make them very red and more noticeable than they already were. The “before” picture is how my legs would look while bathing for the last 3 or so years. I was so happy to take a bath tonight and realize they are almost all gone! I just wanted to thank you again for saving my skin!” Malorie

These are an awesome appetizer to make ahead for an upcoming party. I made the “wrappers” or “puffs” a week ahead and I stored in the freezer. I also made the filling a day ahead and kept in the fridge until just before serving.
“Wrappers” AKA “Puffs”:
3 eggs, separated
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
3 ounces softened cream cheese (or reserved egg yolks if dairy free)
1/2 cup unflavored egg white or whey protein (use egg white protein if dairy free)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Separate the eggs and reserve the yolks for another recipe (creme brule anyone?). In a large bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until VERY stiff. Then add the whey. Using a spatula, gradually fold the cream cheese into the egg white mixture, being careful not to break down the whites. Place round balls of dough onto a GREASED baking sheet (or a mini muffin tin works great). Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Keep oven shut, and leave the puffs in there for another 5 minutes or until cool. Makes 24 puffs.
