White Mountain Frosting

Ingredients

  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

1 Combine sugar, water, and cream of tartar in a saucepan. Cook until candy thermometer reaches 238 degrees F (115 degrees C), or until syrup spins a long thread when dripped from a spoon.
