Ingredients

How to make it

  • Whisk first 7 ingredients in heavy medium saucepan to blend
  • Using whisk, stir over medium heat until filling thickens, and just begins to boil, about 20 minutes
  • Remove from heat
  • Whisk in butter
  • Spoon hot filling into prepared baked, COOLED crust
  • MERINGUE
  • Using electric mixer, beat egg whites in large stainless bowl at low speed until foamy
  • Beat in cream of tartar and 1 tablespoon of the sugar
  • Gradually beat in remaining sugar 1 tablespoon at a time
  • Beat at medium speed until stiff and glossy peaks form, about 8 minutes
  • Spread meringue over warm filling, covering completely, sealing meringue to crust edges and mounding in center
  • Bake pie for 30 minutes at 300 degrees
  • Reduce oven temperature to 275, and continue to bake until pie is golden brown and set when pie is shaken slightly, about 50 minutes in all
  • NOTE: THIS IS PREPARED DIFFERENTLY THAN MOST LEMON MERINGUE PIES, BUT IT IS WONDERFUL!!
  • Cool pie on rack for about 4 hours
