Directions:
Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan or double boiler.
Boil gently until it forms a threadlike hair when poured from a spoon.
Pour hot syrup slowly into beaten egg whites while beating.
Be careful not to splatter hot syrup on the electric beaters.
Continue beating until the icing is fairly stiff.
Then add 1 tsp. vanilla. Food coloring may be added if desired.

** It is a good idea not to beat the egg whites until the syrup is almost ready as it does take a while.

Personal Notes:
I always remember my mom making Ginger Creams and decorating them with this icing at Christmas. It is a little time consuming, but when colored green or red, looks decorative.
