Original recipe yields 1 - 8 inch pie

Directions

  1. Blend cornstarch, 3/4 cup sugar, and salt in a saucepan. Gradually stir in the hot water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Reduce heat to low. Cook and stir 5 minutes longer. Remove from heat.
  2. Mix butter or margarine, egg yolks, orange juice, and orange rind into the cornstarch mixture. Cook one minute more. Cover entire surface with clear plastic. Let cool just slightly, and pour into the cooled pastry shell. Cool to room temperature.
  3. In a clean glass bowl, beat the egg whites with vanilla extract and cream of tartar until foamy. Beat in 4 tablespoons sugar gradually, and continue beating until meringue forms stiff and glossy peaks. Spread meringue in swirls over the filling; be sure to seal to the edge of the pastry.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 to 15 minutes, or till the meringue is tipped golden brown. Cool to room temperature.

I had never made any meringue pie before and found this one easy and very delicious. My boyfriend actually said he'd have to quite eating the lemon meringue pie because it doesn't compare to the orange!

I thought it was fantastic! I substituted the orange juice to 1 orange popsicle and the corn starch to flour and it turned out magnificent!

I wasn't satisfied with how the pie turned out. The zest made it bitter (yes, I know not to use the white part) and gave it more texture than I care for. 2 egg whites made for a very skimpy topping also.
