NOTE: If you opt to double this recipe, I recommend you simply make two individual batches. Doubling the ingredients makes for a substantially longer cooking time.
In top of double boiler with mixer at high speed, beat all ingredients about one minute.
Place over rapidly boiling water; beat at high speed until the mixture forms soft peaks. (This may take longer than 7 minutes).
Pour into large bowl; beat until the mixture is thick enough to spread.
