1 tsp vanilla
2 ( 9") baked pie crust


5 egg white
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Place over medium heat and cook until mixture comes to a full boil. Cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour into baked crusts and allow to cool while making meringue.
Meringue: Place egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla in mixing bowl. Beat at high speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar small amounts at a time. Beat at high speed about 2 minutes until stiff peaks form. Divide between the 2 pies. Brown in 375F oven for 15-18 minutes. Cool before slicing.

Personal Notes:

Look to This Day

Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the verities
And realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth, the glory of action,
The splendor of beauty:

For yesterday is already a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision:
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
A dream of happiness and every tomorrow
A vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day. Author Unknown
