Heat mixture to 160 degrees F while whisking constantly. Transfer mixer bowl to stand mixer, fitted with a whisk attachment and beat on medium high speed (speed 8 on a Kitchen Aid stand mixer) until mixture cools, doubles in volume and forms stiff peaks; about 10-12 minutes.

Whisk until sugar is completely dissolved (you should not be able to feel any sugar granules when you rub a small amount of the egg whites between your fingers). Transfer the mixture to a stand mixture, being very careful not to get any water from the bottom of the bowl into the mixture. Beat at medium-high speed until egg whites form firm peaks and the mixture is cool to the touch. Add the vanilla. While the egg whites are beating, cut each stick of butter into chunks. Once the egg whites have formed stiff peaks, reduce the mixer speed to medium. Add 1 chunk of butter at a time, allowing to firmly incorporate (about 20 seconds) before adding the next chunk of butter. Continue until all the butter is incorporated. NEXT
