  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. Beat egg whites until frothy, add salt, almond extract and slowly add sugar, beating until stiff and glossy. Spread over ice cream, sealing edges. Sprinkle with remaining crumbs. Place under broiler 500 degrees F (260 degrees C) for 2 minutes. Serve at once.

I make this with Digestive biscuits and I leave out the almond extract. Megabon!
