1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 250. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. On each, draw 10 4-inch circles. Mix the sugars and set aside. In a bowl or electric mixer, beat the egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and salt. Continue to beat, adding 1 tablespoon of sugar at a time and beating well after each addition. This will take about 10 minutes. Add the vanilla and beat at high speed until stiff and glossy. Using a pastry tube fitted with a large plain tip, pipe the meringue in coils starting at the center and continuing to the outside of each circle. Bake about 1 hour, until cream colored and firm. Leave the meringues in the turned-off oven for several hours or overnight without opening the oven door.
Carefully peel away the paper.
