  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 16 ounces unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/3 cup water



Beat the egg whites, salt and cream of tartar, slowly add in 1/3 cup of sugar and continue beating until soft peaks form.


While the eggs are getting whipped add the remaining sugar and 1/3 cup water into a medium pot and place on medium-low heat.


Stir until sugar melts and becomes clear.


Maintain at medium-high heat until temperature reads 235-240F.


Drizzle the sugar into the mixer immediately. At this point the meringue should be at the soft peak stage.


Run mixer until meringue is cool/tepid.


Switch to a paddle attachment. Add room temperature butter into running mixer one tablespoon piece at a time.


Add the salt and vanilla if using.


Beat until butter is combined and mixture has reached a silky consistency.
