  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 2 sugar cookies (3 inches)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar


  1. Scoop 1/2 cup of ice cream onto each cookie. Freeze until firm. In a small heavy saucepan or double boiler, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar. With a portable mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating over low heat until egg mixture reaches 160°, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat; beat until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  2. Place cookies on a baking sheet. Immediately spread meringue over ice cream, sealing to edges of cookie. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until the meringue is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
