Meringue Pie Topping

If you have a recipe that calls for egg yolks, you may be wondering what to do with the whites. You could make a nice fluffy angel food cake, you could make meringue cookies, or you could just make meringue.

Meringue Pie Topping

3 egg whites
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Beat the egg whites until they are frothy. Add the sugar a little at a time and keep beating until it forms stiff peaks. Then add the vanilla.

Spread on top of the pie and bake at 325 for 15 minutes or until it is browning on top.

I actually turned off my oven just as the first little peak turned golden- I was hoping that it would make the meringue more crunchy, but, alas, it did not.
