Helen's Seven Minute Icing

This is one recipe Helen obviously made often. If you've ever made Seven Minute Icing you know that it is gooey just like melted marshmallows, but it is also light and fluffy and goes well on just about any cake, especially chocolate. If this recipe is too vague for you then look up a similar one in just about any cook book and use their directions. This is just how Helen had the directions written in her cook book.

Helen's Seven Minute Icing

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 egg white
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Put sugar, water, and unbeaten egg white in double boiler over hot water. Cook 7 minutes, beat constantly. Add vanilla.
