These meringues are great with coffee or with cream for dessert. Substitute 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules or 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa for the vanilla if you like. Sandwich them together with melted white or dark chocolate.

Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
In large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Gradually beat in sugar until a little of the mixture between your thumb and forefinger feels smooth, not gritty. Stir in vanilla. Pipe or spoon small portions onto baking tray and bake 35 minutes, or until dry but not brown. Turn off oven and leave meringues to cool inside.
