"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Mix all of the sugar, yolks, water, flour, butter and lemon rind and juice mixture together in a bowl. Cook in a pan on the stove until thickened. Cook a 9 inch pie crust in a glass dish in a 400 oven for 15 minutes or until slightly brown. Be sure to prick the crust with a fork so it doesn't shrink too much as it bakes. Cool.
Add the lemon mixture. Add the meringue from the 3 egg whites which have been whipped to peak stage to the top of the pie and bake for 15 minutes in a 350 oven until slightly brown.
