3 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets; set aside.
Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add the sugar and vanilla while continuing to beat until the sugar is completely dissolved and the egg whites form stiff peaks.
Drop meringue by rounded teaspoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave in the oven for several hours to dry.
NOTE: A drop or two of food coloring may be used, if desired. Add when adding the vanilla.
