  • 227 Grams Egg Whites

  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Whip the egg yolks, 85 grams of the granulated sugar, and vanilla on medium until thick and light in color, about 10 minutes.
  • Whip the egg whites on medium speed until frothy. Gradually add the remaining 85 grams of granulated sugar while continuing to whip, then whip until medium peaks form.
  • Gently fold in the remaking egg whites to the egg yolk mixture.
  • Gradually fold in the sifted flour.
