Cookie Baked Alaska Recipe

Ingredients

1 cup vanilla ice cream

2 sugar cookies (3 inches)

2 egg whites

1/4 cup sugar

1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

How to make it

Scoop 1/2 cup of ice cream onto each cookie. Freeze until firm. In a small heavy saucepan or double boiler, combine the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar. With a portable mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute. Continue beating over low heat until egg mixture reaches 160°, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat; beat until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.

Place cookies on a baking sheet. Immediately spread meringue over ice cream, sealing to edges of cookie. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until the meringue is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
Yield: 2 servings.
