This recipe is at least 90 years old, my grandmother says they used it a lot during the depression. Also, you can substitute lemon. almond or whatever for the vanilla if your so inclined, but I like vanilla the best. It's also fat free.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a bowl combine the egg whites, corn syrup, and vanilla beat on high speed of an electric mixer for about 6 to 7 minutes. The longer you beat it the stiffer it gets. So if you like a stiff frosting continue beating a little longer.
