Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour eggs whites into a spotlessly-clean bowl.
Whip the egg whites until they are glossy and smooth, then add the cream of tartar to help the egg whites hold their form.
Slowly add the sugar to the egg whites.
Spread meringue on top of cooled pie, place about 4 inches under the heat and bake for about 10 minutes, until golden.
