Whip the egg whites until you have soft peaks.

Turn mixer on low and continue to beat the egg whites. Very slowly and very carefully add the hot sugar syrup.
When all of the sugar syrup is added, turn the mixer up to high speed and beat the meringue until the peaks are stiff and glossy.

This recipe can also be baked as a single large pie in one 9 inch pie crust. You will have some extra dough left over after you trim the edges of your tartlets or pie. You can use this extra dough to make decorations for your tartlets, or to create a few pie crust cookies. I like cinnamon and sugar on mine!
