   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  cups          Sugar
      1/2  teaspoon      Light corn syrup
      2/3  cup           Water -- boiling
    2                    Egg whites -- stiffly beaten
    1      teaspoon      Vanilla
 
 Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Bring quickly to a boil, stirring
 only until sugar is dissolved. Boil rapidly, without stirring, until small
 amount of syrup forms a soft ball in cold water, or spins a long thread
 when dropped from tip of spoon ( 240
  deg. F.). Pour syrup in fine stream over egg whites, beating constantly.
 Add vanilla. Continue beating with rotary egg beater 10 to 15 minutes, or
 until frosting is cool and of right consistency to spread. Use wooden
 spoon when too stiff for beater. Make s enough frosting to cover tops and
 sides of two 9-inch layers.
