Lemon Meringue Pie
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups of water
3 egg yolks beaten
½ cup of fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine
Combine the sugar cornstarch water salt, stir and then stir in water.
Cook until thick.
Add a little of the hot mixture to the egg yolks and stir then add to the rest of the hot mixture.
This way you will not have scrambled eggs in your pie!! Cook with the eggs in it for a minute then add lemon juice and butter.
Put in one of your good baked pie shells about a 9 inch.
3 egg whites until stiff fold in
6 tablespoons of sugar
Put over pie filling and be sure and put over all the edges
of the pie, so the filling does not show. This will make it not weep, and
you don't want a weepy pie!!
