White meringue cookies

How can I keep my meringue cookies stay white? Should you add cornstarch or vinegar or just cream of tartar to stabilize whites?

I have had the best luck with cream of tartar. they might not be snow white, but shouldn't be an off-putting color either.

The sugar is the stabilizer, you shouldn't need to add anything else. I've found that generally the only color my meringue cookies get is from the vanilla or from cooking at too high a temperature.
