DIRECTIONS

  • Whip the egg whites and salt into peaks.
  • Add the vanilla, and continue beating until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
  • In a separate bowl, stir the cream of tartar into the regular sugar and whisk into the whites very gradually, a spoonful at a time, until the meringue is stiff and the sugar has dissolved.
  • Sift together the icing sugar and cornstarch. Sift over the meringue and gently fold until fully incorporated.
  • Pipe or spoon the meringues onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Each meringue should be about the size of a bar of soap.
  • Bake at 225ºF/110ºC until cream-coloured and crisp on top when tapped, 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  • Remove from the oven. Cool on the trays. Store in an air-tight container.
