Beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.   Add the vinegar and the salt and mix it in on low speed for about 5 - 7 seconds.  
  • Line a baking tray with parchment then take the parchment and put a 9-10 inch plate on top on one end of the paper. Draw a line around the plate and do the same on the other end so you have two perfect circles. Turn over the paper and put it back on the tray. Take the egg whites and spread them inside the two circles evenly.
