(I double this recipe)
2 egg whites
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ cup fine granulated sugar
Beat egg whites until stiff and dry, beat in six tablespoons of sugar, a spoon at a time. Beat until it forms peaks. Add vanilla, then fold in the rest of the sugar. Shape with a spoon on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake at 250 for 50 minutes.
(When you shape them, make them with little peaks like Hershey's Kisses.)
