  2. In a bowl, add the egg whites, lemon extract, cream of tartar & salt and beat on medium speed until foamy.
  3. Gradually add the sugar (1 tablespoon at a time), beating on high after each addition.
  4. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form and the sugar is dissolved (about 7 minutes).
  5. Using a pastry bag & large star tip, pipe 1 and 1/2 inch stars about 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until firm to the touch.
