1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup fat free skim milk

Heat oven to 350F. Beat egg whites in small bowl at high
speed until foamy (1 to 2 minutes). Continue beating,
gradually adding 1/4 cup sugar, until glossy and stiff peaks
form (2 to 3 minutes). Set aside.

Combine remaining 3/4 cup sugar and butter in large bowl.

egg whites.

Pour mixture into ungreased 1 1/2-quart casserole. Place
