East European Milk Soup Recipe?!

Question: East European Milk Soup Recipe?
When I was a child my mother made a soup of warmed milk, and dropped egg whites mixed with sugar into it like dumplings. It was sweet & very simple. Can anyone help? It was so delicious!

"Nothing" Soup (Zupa Nic)


4 eggs, separated
1/3 cup sugar
1 quart milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash of cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)


Beat egg yolks with 3 tablespoons of the sugar until very fluffy.
With clean beaters, beat the egg whites until frothy.
Gradually beat in the remaining sugar.
Continue beating until stiff, not dry, peaks form.
Heat milk over medium heat in a deep 10 inch skillet or 5 or 6 quart dutch oven just until a skin forms on top, about 3 minutes.
Drop beaten egg whites by rounded spoonfuls into hot milk.
Cook until the egg white kisses are set and firm to the touch, about 5 minutes.
Remove kisses with a slotted spoon to waxed or absorbent paper.
Stirring constantly, gradually add hot milk to egg yolks.
Strain into a heavy saucepan.
Add vanilla extract and salt.
Cook and stir over medium low heat about 3 minutes, until thickened, and soup coats a spoon.
Serve soup with 2 or 3 meringues in each portion.
Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
Serve hot or cold.

Or try this recipe from my country. It's very similar if not the same.
