Meringue Topping

Preheat oven to 325 to 350 degrees F.

Whip 3 egg whites (absolutely no yolk) until frothy (electric beaters). Add 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar. Whip until stiff but not dry, until they stand in peaks that lean over slightly when beaters are removed.
Beat in 2 - 3 Tbsp. sugar, a little at a time. If you like at 1/4 tsp. vanilla. Spread over pie and bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes depending on the thickness of the meringue. This will cook the egg whites. Watch carefully and rotate pie to ensure even browning.
