  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift together flour and 1/2 cup sugar three times; set aside.
  2. Add cream of tartar, vanilla and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time. Fold in blueberries and lemon peel.
  3. Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 375° for 14-17 minutes or until cupcakes spring back when lightly touched. Immediately remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Brush over cupcakes. Let stand until set. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"I made this recipe with a box angel food mix due to a time family loved them. Moist, light, but not as boring as plain angelfood cake!Will definitely make these again!"

"These sounded yummy, but all I could taste was cream of tarter. The icing made them sticky and mushy."
