How to make perfect meringue

Recipe for how to make perfect meringue and it comes out perfect every time!

3 egg whites
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
6 tablespoons sugar

Beat egg whites with vanilla and cream of tartar till soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating till stiff and glossy and all sugar is dissolved.
Spread meringue over pie filling sealing meringue to edges of pastry all around. This prevents shrinking.
