In a small bowl, mix corn starch and vinegar, set aside. In the electric mixer bowl, beat the egg whites until they become frothy. Gradually sprinkle sugar while beating until stiff peaks form.  Add the corn starch to the mix.

Spread the meringue on the cookie sheet by forming a circle of approximately 20 cm (8 inches) of diameter. Cook in the oven for 1 h 15. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
