Add vanilla and chopped nuts, stir ring only enough to blend lightly. It is important to use Jack Frost Confectioners XXXX Sugar for two reasons: First—it is so quick-dissolving it will blend with your beaten egg whites without breaking the air bubbles you have whipped into them. Second—the extreme fineness of Jack Frost Confectioners XXXX Sugar makes the meringue smooth and creamy when baked dry. Drop the meringue mixture by spoonfuls on a baking sheet cavered with un glazed paper which has been dipped in water. Bake in a very alow oven (250s F.) about 1 hour, or until dried out and lightly browned. Remove from paper at once. If drops stick, wet paper on under side. Makes 24 small drops.
