  3. In a metal bowl, whisk egg whites, arrowroot, and lemon extract until medium-firm peaks are formed.  SLOWLY add sugar crystals while continuing to whisk until stiff peaks form.
  4. Place mixture in a piping tube/bag with a wide tip…or spoon into a gallon plastic bag and cut off the corner tip.  Pipe mixture into mounds onto parchment paper.
