Thumbprint Meringues

Key Ingredient: Raspberry jam

This is another fun recipe to make with kids, who will get a kick out of seeing egg whites rise into cloudlike meringue, then leaving their signature thumbprint in each puff before baking. To keep it kid-friendly, leave out the raspberry liqueur. (If the jam seems thick, stir in a few drops of lemon or lime juice.) At just 37 calories apiece, these treats won't ruin anyone's appetite for a healthful dinner.
