    BakinBaby's Note:

    Lemon extract and fresh lemons from my very own back yard make this a real family favorite using 4 eggs. The meringue is very high. I would suggest trying my Easy Oil Pie Crust for your crust or if in a hurry use packaged or frozen crust.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pie

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare crust, bake and set aside to cool.
    2. 2
      In a medium saucepan, over medium heat; combine sugar,cornstarch & flour, add 2 cups boiling water, cook and stir with a wire wisk over medium heat until thickened and bubbly, reduce heat & cook 2 minutes more.
    3. 3
      Gradually add 1/2 cup hot mixture to egg yolks, then pour egg yolk/pudding mixture back into remaining filling in saucepan and cook another 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove from heat and add butter,lemon zest, vanilla, lemon extract and lemon juice, stir to combine.
    5. 5
      Pour lemon mixture into cooked crust and set aside, allow to slightly cool.
    6. 6
      In the mean time, prepare meringue by beating 4 egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla until soft peaks form.
    7. 7
      Then gradually add 1/2 cup sugar ( 1 tablespoon at a time), beat at high speed until stiff peaks form.

      With a soft scrapper add large fluffy dollops of meringue on top of lemon filling, making sure to attach meringue to crust edges. This insures the meringue will not pull away from the crust.

      My first time trying lemon merengue pie and was so disappointed - the pie looked beautiful when I took it out of the oven - only the merengue was perfect - the filling was very runny. Don't know what I did wrong as I followed recipe step by step.
