Preheat oven to 250(F) degrees.

Line cookie sheets with wax/parchment paper or foil.

Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until frothy. Add the salt and cream of tartar, continue beating until until soft peaks form.

Add sugar, gradually, to the egg white mixture and continue beating until it becomes glossy and firm peaks form.

Fold in orange zest if desired.
