Danise's picture
Ingredients
  Egg whites 6 (At Room Temperature)
  Cream of tartar 1⁄8 Teaspoon (1/2 Ml)
  Sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs) (500 Ml)
  Vanilla extract 5 Milliliter (1 Tsp)
  White vinegar 15 Milliliter (1 Tbsp)
Directions

Preheat oven to 140oC (275oF).

Grease 2 baking sheets.

In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer until foamy.

Add cream of tartar and continue beating until soft peaks form.

Gradually add sugar, 30 mL (2 tbsp) at a time, beating constantly until sugar is dissolved.

Add vanilla and vinegar and beat until whites are very stiff and shiny, about 10 minutes more.

Place about 125 mL (1/2 cup) meringue on baking sheet.

Using your hands, pull the meringue into a peak.

Smooth the sides, and repeat with remaining meringue.

Alternatively, pipe meringue onto baking sheet using a pastry bag.

Bake until meringues are lightly browned, about 45 minutes.

Cool completely on wire racks.
