Forgotten Dessert


5 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla


Beat 5 egg whites until foamy; add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar.  Beat until egg whites stand in soft peaks.  Add 1 1/2 cups sugar, very gradually, and keep on beating until egg whites are stiff.  Flavor with 1 teaspoon vanilla.  

Grease well and flour a 9-inch pie plate.  Spread meringue on the bottom, leaving it high around the edge and scooping out in the center, to form a shell.  Have oven preheated to 400-degrees.  Place meringue in the oven and turn off heat immediately.  Leave in oven overnight - don't peak.  If prepared in the morning, allow meringue to remain in the oven (with the heat turned off) at least 4-5 hours.  

Before serving, fill with Silver Lake House Filling, and top with frozen raspberries or strawberries.  Cut as a pie.
