Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 13-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray, and line with parchment. Coat parchment with spray.

  • Whisk whites and cream of tartar with a mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Slowly add 3/4 cup sugar, and whisk until thick and glossy, about 3 minutes.

  • Sift remaining 1/2 cup sugar, the flour, and a pinch of salt over egg-white mixture, and fold gently until just combined, being careful not to deflate whites. Spread batter evenly onto prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden and set, about 20 minutes.

  • Let cool completely in sheet on a wire rack. (Cake should pull away from sides easily.) Slide cake out from sheet, right side up; cut in half crosswise to form two 8 1/2-by-13-inch pieces. Carefully remove parchment from cake.
