    With a spatula spread the fluffy egg white onto a flat cookie pan lined with a non stick buttered cookie baking sheet- about an inch and a half thick

    Step 11

    Step 12

    Bake in the oven for 30 min. or until the top has browned.

    Step 13

    While the long sheet of egg white cooks in the oven - Mix 1/3 can of condensed milk to the yolk

    Step 14

    Your stove should be on low heat as to not burn the yolk mixture or use double boiler method

    Step 15

    Pour in a sauce pan and also add 1 tbsp of butter (adding butter is optional )

    Step 16

    Mix yolk and condensed milk stirring constantly until it thickens but is smooth - add 1 tbsp of vanilla extract and stir for another minute.

    Remove the egg whites from the oven once it is golden brown like this...

    Step 19

    Dust plenty of powder sugar on top and let it cool off before flipping it upside down .

    Step 20

    Lay a sheet of aluminum foil on a flat surface and flip the egg white. The baking sheet should peel off easily.

    Step 21

    Like this! This is the back side if the baked egg sheet . I can't stress enough to use NON STICK cookie sheet or butter sheet well first instead of wax paper... It does the job well!

    Step 22

    Spread the yolk batter mix evenly on the egg white sheet (back flipped side ) and roll. Let it set for at least an hour in the fridge before serving .
