Ingredients for Italian Meringue
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 large egg whites, room temperature
Pinch of salt and cream of tartar
Directions for Italian Meringue
In a clean medium to large bowl, whisk whites with a mixer on low speed until foamy. Add salt and cream of tartar. Increase speed to medium, and whisk until soft peaks form, about 8 minutes.
Meanwhile, bring sugar, water, and corn syrup to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cook, undisturbed, until syrup registers 240- 248 degrees F on a candy thermometer (about 1-2 minutes).
Pour hot syrup down side of bowl in a slow, steady stream with mixer on low speed. Increase speed to high, and beat until mixture stops steaming, about 3 minutes. Use immediately.
