Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl mix cold water and cornstarch to a thin paste. In a medium saucepan bring hot water and sugar to a boil, then add cornstarch paste. Transfer this mixture to a double boiler. Cook until thick and smooth, stirring constantly, about 15 minutes. Whisk a small amount of this mixture into egg yolks, then whisk egg yolk mixture back into double boiler. Cook everything together for a few minutes longer, continuing to stir. Mix in juice and rind of 1 lemon along with butter. Set custard aside to cool.
  3. In a medium glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites while gradually adding sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. When egg whites hold a stiff peak, beat 1 teaspoon lemon juice into meringue.
  4. Pour filling into baked pie shell. Spread meringue over lemon filling.
  5. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes or until delicately browned.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Being a chef I saw that the sugar was too much. I make it with only 1 cup of sugar and baked meringue at 375 for only 6 min. great pie. I also make it with 1 1/2 cups sugar but added one more egg and a 1/4 cup more lemon juice. Great pie and the meringue is higher.325 is too low for a meringue to brown.

The lemon filling should be tart, not sweet, this pie was a waste of money and time, a big dissappointment, it was just nothing but a big sugar pie... yuk!
