I am not sure yet. Tuesdays are hard since my son has trumpet lessons at 4:30. Dinner usually waits until I get home from that.

A OTR truck driver once told me that I made the best lemon meringue pie that he's ever tasted...quite the compliment!!!!

 

Lemon Meringue Pie

Filling:

  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp. margarine
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice

Mix sugar, cornstarch and water in pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. boil one minue. Stir about 1/2 of the hot mixture into the egg yolks, stirring constantly. Return to pan and boil for 1 minute more. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice and margarine until melted. Pour into baked pie shell.

Meringue:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 6 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla

Beat egg whites with lemon juice at high speed until light and foamy. Gradually beat in sugar. Continue beating at high speed until stiff and sugar is dissolved. Slowly mix in vanilla. Pile meringue on hot pie filling, spreading in from the edge and sealing to the edge. Bake at 400 for 8 t0 10 minutes. Watch carefully! Remove when lightly browned. Cool slowly away from drafts. Store in refrigerator.

Note: you can substitute lime juice for the lemon juice to make a lime meringue pie. Add a drop or two of green food coloring to the filling if desired.
