Sift flour and ¾ cup sugar together.
Beat egg whites until foamy; add cream of tartar, salt, and vanilla, and beat until mixture begins to hold its shape.
Gradually add remaining sugar and beat until mixture is very stiff and glossy.
Sift dry ingredients onto egg whites, a little at a time, and carefully fold in until well blended.
