double boiler frosting

2 egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/3 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all ingredients except vanilla in top of double boiler. Place over boiling water (about one inch in bottom of double boiler). Beat with a portable egg beater until stiff peaks form (about 7 minutes). Scrape bottom & sides of pan occasionally. Add vanilla & beat 2 more minutes (off of the heat).
