1/4 teaspoon SALT
3 large eggs -- SEPARATED

Preheat OVEN TO 350 f. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.

With clean beaters, beat the egg whites until stiff and shiny; begin to add sugar, not more than 1 Tablespoon at a time, and beat constantly. Continue to beat rapidly until whites are very stiff and glossy. Gently fold in the beaten egg yolks. In the same manner fold in the dry ingredients until well mixed. Using a small spatula and a measuring tablespoon, measure and droop onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes until light and golden brown.
