Preheat oven to 275° F. Heavily butter a 9-inch pie plate. In a small mixer bowl beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar and continue beating until stiff and glossy but not dry. Spread in pie plate and bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Turn off heat and let shell cool in the oven. Shell will fall slightly.
