In a small saucepan, combine ¾ cup water, ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Stir until blended. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly until transparent and thickened. In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 egg whites and a dash of salt. Beat with an electric mixture until frothy. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, and continue beating while gradually pouring cooked syrup into egg whites. Beat 3 minutes, or until stiff. Do not over-beat. Spread over the top of a cream pie and bake at 425 degrees (F) for 5 to 8 minutes. Lovely meringue! I hope you enjoy this recipe! --Betty
