    In a perfectly clean large bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer set on high speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/4 cup of the remaining sugar in a steady stream and continue beating until the whites are stiff and glossy but not dry. Beat in the vanilla. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar over the top of the whites and fold in gently. Gently fold in the flour mixture.
