Remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour into baked pie shell.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat egg white and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually add in sugar as you are beating and beat until stiff and glossy. Spread over pie sealing meringue to pie crust. Bake in 350 oven until golden brown.
