Put the egg whites into the bowl of a mixer fitted with the whisk; whip at medium speed, until they double in volume, incorporating 11/2 oz (35 g) of sugar, and continue to whisk until they become very firm, very smooth, and very glossy, while adding another 2 oz (65 g) of sugar. Detach the mixer bowl and fold in 3 1/2 oz (100 g) of sugar in a steady stream, lifting the meringue with a spatula, and working it as little as possible. Use immediately.
