Lemon Pie

Ingredients:

4 heaping tablespoons flour

1 cup sugar

Pinch salt

Grated rind of half a lemon

Juice of 1 lemon

2 cups warm water

3 egg yolks

1 Tbs butter

1 unbaked pie shell

Blend ingredients in a double boiler and cook until thick, stirring constantly.  Pour into a baked pie shell and cool.

 

Meringue:

3 egg whites

1 Tbs water

1/4 tsp cream of tatar

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 tsp vanilla

6 Tbs granulated sugar

Put egg whites, water, cream of tartar, salt and vanilla in a bowl.  Beat until foamy.  Continue beating at high speed and slowly add the 6 Tbs of sugar.  Beat until stiff peaks form.  Spread over the hot lemon mixture, being careful to seal meringue to the crust.  Bake in a 300 degree oven until golden and tipped with brown.
