cup  refrigerated pasteurized egg whites
tsp.  cream of tartar
pkg.  (16 oz.) powdered sugar (about 4 cups)

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Prepared icing must be kept covered at all times to prevent hardening.
Make it Easy
Icing can be prepared ahead of time. Prepare as directed, then place in medium bowl; place plastic wrap directly on surface of icing. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Beat with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form just before using.
