Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Heat 3/4 cup sugar, the water, and corn syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Increase heat, and bring to a boil. Wash down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming. Cook until it registers 235 degrees on a candy thermometer.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, whisk whites with a mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form, about 2 1/2 minutes. Add remaining tablespoon sugar; reduce speed to medium-low. Pour sugar syrup into whites in a slow, steady stream. Increase speed to medium high; beat until stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes. Beat in vanilla; use immediately.
