    1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
    3/4 cup cream
    vanilla essence

    Line 3 trays with non-stick paper. Beat egg whites on low speed with electric beater until frothy. Add cream of tartar and beat on highest speed until peaks hold their shape. Gradually beat in 3 Tbs of sifted sugar and continue beating for 2-3 minutes until mixture is stiff. Remove beaters and sprinkle coffee powder and remaining sugar over the mixture and fold in quickly and carefully with a metal spoon. Pipe or drop tsp of the mixture on to trays.

Cool and join in pairs with vanilla flavored whipped cream. Serve in small paper cases if wished. Makes 2 dozen. Meringues may be made well in advance and stored in an airtight tin.
