Meringue Shells

Chef.at.Home's picture
Ingredients
  Egg whites 3
  Cream of tartar 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Vanilla 12 Teaspoon
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
Directions

1. Combine egg whites, cream of tartar, salt and vanilla in your biggest bowl. Start mixer at medium speed and beat for 2 minutes, or just until mixture turns foamy-white and doubles in volume.
2. Increase speed just enough so sugar won't fly. Start sprinkling in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, till meringue forms firm peaks.
3. Prepare a brown-paper-lined cookie sheet marked with eight 4-inch circles. Spoon on meringue and swirl into shell shapes.
4. Bake in very slow oven (275°) 45 minutes, or till set. Cool; peel off paper.
