Wanda Dero


1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
4 egg yolks
1 3/4 c water
1/2 c lemon juice
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp grated lemon rind
1 (9-in) baked pastry shell

4-6 egg whites
1/2 to 3/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Set sugar mixture aside. Combine egg yolks, water and juice. Stir into sugar mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in butter and lemon rind. Spoon into baked pastry shell. Spread meringue over hot filling, sealing to edge of pastry. Bake at 325 for 25-38 minutes. Makes 1 (9-inch) pie. This pie is very firm, if you prefer a less firm pie, substitute 1/3 c cornstarch for 1/2 c cornstarch and cook as directed. MERINGUE: Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed with an electric mixer just until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves, 2-4 minutes. Add vanilla, beating well. Put on top of pie and put in oven until whites are a light brown.
