In large mixing bowl allow egg whites to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, grease a cookie sheet; set aside. Add vanilla & cream of tartar to egg whites. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add the powdered sugar, about 1/4 cup at a time, beating on medium speed just until combined. Beat for 1 to 2 minutes more or until soft peaks form. (Do not continue beating to stiff peaks.) Using a spoon, gently fold in the cashews or mixed nuts. Drop egg white mixture by rounded teaspoon about 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake cookies in a 325 degree F oven about 15 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.
