Snow Drops


Yummy and so simple to make.

3 large egg whites
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup sugar

1. Preheat oven to 300°.

2. In an electric mixer, beat the egg whites, salt and cream of tarter on high speed until soft peaks form.

3. Add the sugar, a few tablespoons at a time, and beat until shiny and stiff peaks form.

4. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat. Drop batter by the tablespoon onto the baking sheet and swirl each into a peak.
