1 cup white sugar, 6 tablespoons white sugar, divided
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
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
4 egg whites
How To Make-
Set your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a saucepan, mix together 1 cup sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Add in water, lemon juice and lemon zest. While stirring frequently, cook over medium heat, until mixture comes to a boil. Stir in butter.
Place beaten egg yolks in a small bowl and slowly add in 1/2 cup of hot sugar mixture. Transfer 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 filling into baked pastry crust.
In a large bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy. Add 6 tablespoons sugar slowly, and continue to blend until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over pie, sealing the edges at the crust.
Cook oven for 10 minutes, until meringue is golden brown.
