Directions:
Let eggs get to room temperature before beating. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar and add sugar a little at a time until egg whites are stiff. Grease a shallow baking pan with butter. Make these as individual "cups" by dropping heaping tablespoons (about 3 inches in diameter) onto a cookie sheet then indenting each slightly with the back of a spoon. Bake at 270 for 10 minutes; then at 250 for 30 minutes. Turn off oven and leave meringues in the oven until cool. Fill with preferred fillings and serve.

Another way to make these is to drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet then pull the spoon up to form "kisses". Serve these like candy or on a dessert plate with two scoops of ice cream. Store meringue candies in a tin.
