  • 3 lg Egg whites
  • 1/2 ts Cream of tartar
  • Paste or powdered food
  • -coloring (opt.)

and cream of tartar just until well mixed. At high speed, beat mixture

If desired, to color frosting, divide into small bowls and mix in food

Note: This frosting is used not only to decorate or spread onto cookies but
also as an adhesive. Because of current health concerns about salmonella in
raw eggs, frosting on cookies that will be eaten should be made from
meringue powder instead of egg whites following package instructions. For
purely decorative cookies, we prefer this egg-white frosting over the
meringue-powder version because of its stronger gluing property.
