Ingredients

2 large egg whites at room temperature
pinch of cream of tartar (optional)
1/3 cup superfine sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
colored sugar or sprinkles (optional)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 275 F. Spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray or line with a piece of baking parchment. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat egg whites until frothy. Add cream of tartar (optional) and vanilla, and beat on high speed, adding the sugar one tablespoon at a time until the egg whites hold stiff peaks.

3. Drop batter by heaping teaspoons two inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet. This recipe makes approximately 20 cookies. Sprinkle with colored baking sugar or sprinkles if desired.

4. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and centers of cookies are set. Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in a cool, dry place.
