Helen's Meringue

Helen's Meringue

6 egg whites
2 cups sugar
1/8 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt

This recipe has no directions except to bake at 275 degrees for 1 hour.
For your convenience I have searched for a similar recipe and added the directions below.
Please note that this recipe is probably enough for 2 pie shells as the recipe that came with the directions below had half the ingredients as listed above.
Directions: In a large bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt until soft peaks form. Add vanilla, and slowly beat in sugar until very stiff and glossy. Spread mixture into a 9 inch pie plate to form a shell.

Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 50 minutes. Turn oven off, and leave meringue in oven for 1 hour. Cool.
You can fill these meringues with fresh fruit, similar to the one pictured above.
