            Meringue cookbook
       3    Egg whites
     1/4 ts Cream of tartar
       3 tb Brown sugar
       1 ts Vanilla or almond extract
       3 c  Granola cereal
            Maraschino cherries; for
            -garnish
  
   Place the oven rack about a third up from the bottom. Preheat the oven to
   350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and lightly grease
   it.
   
   In a large, grease-free bowl beat the egg whites at a slow steady speed.
   When they are foamy add the cream of tartar. Gradually add the brown sugar,
   sifting it in through your fingertips to be sure it is free of lumps. Beat
   in the vanilla or almond extract and continue to beat until the meringue
   form soft peaks. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the granola, about 1/2 cup
   at a time. When the batter is evenly blended, drop it by rounded
   tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet.
   
   Bake the cookies at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until they are brown.
   Press a maraschino cherry into the center of each if you wish to garnish
   them, and remove the cookies from the cookie sheet with a spatula while
   they are still warm.
   
   Yield: about 3 dozen cookies.
