Burnt Sugar Frosting

Have mixer ready and put one large egg white in bowl with a few grains of salt.

Cook together ‘til it begins to spin a thread when dropped from the tip of the spoon:
3/4 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. white corn syrup

Melt 2 Tbsp. sugar ‘til light brown and bubbly.

Add 1/3 c. hot water, slowly 'til sugar has dissolved.

While syrup is cooking, beat egg white. Pour syrup into beaten egg, in a thin stream while beating. Beat ‘til thick and partly cooled.

Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 c. powdered sugar. Continue to beat ‘til frosting stands in firm peaks.
