How to make it

  • Mix corn starch, 1 1/2 cups sugar, water and egg yolks in saucepan over medium heat. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil (about 8 to 10 minutes), reduce heat and continue stirring for one minute more very thick. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice, lemon zest, and butter until smooth.
  • =====================================================
  • Pour hot filling into pie crust.
  • =====================================================
  • Beat egg whites in mixer at high speed until soft peaks form; gradually add 1/2 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons corn starch, beating until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight), about 3 minutes.
  • =====================================================
  • Top pie by spooning meringue over hot pie filling, making sure meringue touches edges of pie crust to seal. Use the back of a spoon to swirl meringue and draw up into peaks.
  • =====================================================
  • Bake: Place oven rack in bottom third of preheated 375 degree F oven. Bake 10 minutes, until peaks are lightly browned.
  • =====================================================
  • Cool at room temperature for 30 minutes. Chill for a minimun of 3 hours before serving.

    This sounds like my mom is going to love this! I've never made a meringue pie before, this is going to be an experiment. I helped mom years ago to make the meringue for one, it was intereting. She doesn't cook now as she is disabled due to a terrible car accident. So, now it's my turn to make one on my own. Wish me luck.
