1 cup white sugar (for this recipe I used brown sugar since I was out of white)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups water
2 lemons, juiced and zested
2 tablespoons butter (I used "I can't believe it's not butter)
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 (9 inch) pie crust baked
4 egg whites
6 tablespoons of white sugar (again, I used brown sugar)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook over medium-high heat, stir frequently until mixture comes to a boil. Add butter. Place egg yolks in a small bowl and gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of hot sugar mix. Whisk egg yolk mixture back into remaining sugar mixture. Bring to a boil and continue to cook while stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat and pour the filling into the baked pie crust.
3. Next in a large bowl, whip egg whites until foamy. Then add the sugar gradually meanwhile continuing to whip until stiff peaks form. Spread over pie.
4. Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes or until meringue is golden brown.
This was a recipe that I had never made before and had found on Allrecipes.com. It was a huge hit with my family and especially my husband who isn't much of a pie fan. Hope you enjoy!!!
