Got this from Better Homes and Gardens. Awesome! Tip: Use a metal, glass or stoneware bowl to mix meringues. Avoid plastic. Key to success is to watch the 'look' of the egg whites. When they have a satin sheen, it's time to add more sugar. If they become lumpy or grainy,you've beated to long. Toss and start over.
