  5. In medium bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on high speed just until soft peaks begin to form. Add sugar gradually, and beat until stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla. Spoon a dollop of meringue on top of each pie. Set oven control to broil. Broil pies with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 30 to 60 seconds or until meringue browns slightly.

If crusts puff up too much, use the bottom of a shot glass to push down the centers immediately after baking.
