GINGERBREAD HOUSE ICING
Makes a lot.
Note: Use the icing for "glue" or "snow" when making a gingerbread house.
• 1 lb. powdered sugar
• Dash salt
• 1 tsp. cream of tartar
• 3 egg whites
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Whisk together sugar, salt and cream of tartar.
Beat egg whites to a soft peak. Slowly add the dry ingredients and vanilla to egg whites and beat until stiff peaks form.
Use a pastry bag (or plastic bag with a tiny corner clipped off one end) to distribute the icing.
