Calories 2 kcal


  • 3 Large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar


  • Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and vanilla until foamy.
  • Add the cream of tartar and beat for about 1 minute more, being sure not to overbeat.
  • Add the sugar slowly. Continue beating and adding remaining sugar in batches, until all of the sugar is dissolved and the meringue is glossy.
  • Transfer mixture to a pastry bag or large zip-top bag fitted with large round tip. Pipe into 2-inch spirals on prepared baking sheet, leaving 1-inch of space between cookies. Place baking sheets in the preheated oven and turn the oven off. Leave the cookies undisturbed in the oven for at least 2 hours, or until cookies are crisp and dry.
