I am also a Kentucky girl. This recipe is almost identical to mine except I use 2 1/2 cups sugar and 2 egg whites. This recipe has been in my family for almost 125 years that I know of and maybe longer?

While mixture is cooking beat egg whites until peaks form, once syrup mixture is to the soft ball stage slowly pour over the egg whites in the mixer.
