The gloriously fluffy topping is the perfect addition to any dessert. Seriously, I try and incorporate this stuff into every recipe I can. It is so simple to make, and it only takes 7 minutes. What more could you want?
In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk together 1/4 cup of water, sugar, egg whites, cream of tartar and salt.
Set bowl over a pot of simmering water whisk the mixture until it is very warm. Remove bowl from the pot.
Beat until frosting is stiff and cooled, about 5-7 minutes. Beat in vanilla.
