Lemon Meringue Pie

My grandmother was a very loving and generous person. Her family always came first. She loved to go into the 5 & dime stores, it was almost a form of entertainment for her because in general she disliked shopping, but the 5 & dime stores were different."


1/2 C cold water
7 TB cornstarch
1 1/2 C hot water
1 1/4 C sugar
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
juice of 3 lemons
1 TB butter

3 egg whites
6 TB sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla


Bake a 9 inch pastry crust

Mix 1/2 cup cold water and cornstarch to thick paste consistency. Stir in egg yolks. Slowly add hot water, stirring it in as it poured into the cornstarch mixture. Pour into one quart saucepan.
Add sugar and lemon juice, stir to blend.
Over low heat, using a whisk stir constantly to prevent lumps and assure a smooth consistency. Cook until thickened.
Add butter, stir until completely melted and blended in.
Pour filling into a 9 inch baked pie shell.

With hand held electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add sugar one tablespoon at a time, beating after each addition. Continue beating until stiff but not dry peaks form.
