Beat in remaining 3/4 c sugar a little at a time on high speed, add vanilla with last addition of sugar, until stiff and glossy meringue forms. Do not under beat.
Sprinkle sugar/ flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, over meringue, folding in just until mixture disappears, transfer egg white mixture to a very large bowl if necessary.
