Ingredients
  Vanilla ice cream/Lemon / lime / orange sherbet 1 Quart
  Seedless oranges 3 Large
  Egg whites 4
  Cream of tartar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Granulated sugar/Brown sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Scoop ice cream into 6 balls.
Freeze until firm, at least 6 hours.
Cut oranges crosswise in half; if necessary, cut very thin slice from bottom of each half so oranges will stand upright.
Cut around edges and membranes to loosen; remove fruit and membrane from shells.
Line bottom of each shell with cut-up fruit.
Refrigerate.
Move oven rack to lowest position.
Heat oven to 500°.
Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy.
Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff and glossy.
Do not under-beat.
Place orange shells on ungreased baking sheet; fill each shell with an ice-cream ball.
Completely cover ice cream with meringue, sealing it to edge of shells.
Bake until meringue is light brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
