  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. In a clean bowl, use an electric whisk to beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks with the cream cheese until completely smooth.
  3. Gently fold the egg whites into the soft cheese mixture until fully combined. Spoon 4 large dollops of the mixture onto each lined baking tray, spreading out carefully into thick rounds with the back of the spoon. Make sure to leave a clear space between each one as they will spread as they cook.
  4. Bake for 15-20 mins until puffed up and golden. Allow to cool slightly on the baking tray then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy on their own, or serve with your favourite toppings and fillings.
