Why the need for it to be cooked??   Triditionally it is just egg whites and sugar beaten to death :)

AYes, I use a cooked recipe. It's from the joy of cooking. You microwave the egg whites with half the powdered sugar and then beat in the rest of the sugar after the egg whites have reached about 160F, or so. Very simple and I don't worry about using fresh egg whites this way.

You can used pasteurized egg whites [in the cartons] if it's really an issue, but I can assure you that it's not generally seen as a problem.
