    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1 cups sugar

    7 tablespoons cornstarch Dash salt

    1 cups water

    3 egg yolks, beaten

    1 teaspoon lemon zest

    2 tablespoons butter

    cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

    1 9-inch baked pastry shell Meringue


    3 egg whites

    1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

    Preheat oven to 3500F. In a saucepan, combine 11/2 cups sugar, cornstarch, and salt; mix thoroughly. Gradually stir in water. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil.

Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add lemon zest and butter. Slowly stir in cup lemon juice. Cool to lukewarm. Pour into a cooled baked pastry shell. Prepare Meringue. Spread Meringue over filling, sealing to edges of pastry to avoid shrinking. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until meringue is golden. Cool thoroughly before serving.
