Beat the egg whites until frothy, then add the cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Add the sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff, glossy peaks form. Mound quickly on to the pie, spreading to seal all edges. Bake in a 425 degrees F oven 3 or 4 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve immediately or freeze.
Want to gild the lily? When serving, dribble a little chocolate sauce over the pie, or garnish the top with crushed and sweetened fresh strawberries.
