  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  2. Beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt in large mixer bowl until foamy.
  3. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff and glossy. Do not under-beat.
  4. Beat egg yolks in small mixer bowl until thick and lemon colored, about 3 minutes.
  5. Beat in flour and lemon peel.
  6. Carefully fold egg yolk mixture into meringue.
  7. Spoon meringue mixture into 6 separate mounds in baking dish.
  8. Bake until golden, 18 to 20 minutes.
