  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Beat egg whites until foamy and gradually add 2 Tbsp of the sugar; continue to beat until soft peaks form.
  3. Beat the yolks with the balance of the sugar until thick and light.
  4. Add flour, rind, juice, milk and butter and beat until blended.
  5. Fold into the egg whites.
  6. Pour into the pie shell and bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes until the top is golden brown.
  7. This rises somewhat during baking but then sinks a bit with cooling.

Hi, This was good. I took the advice of the last person and put less sugar in and used a 1/2 tsp of granulated lemon rind. Leanne

One of my PAC picks Spring 2007 We (the three of us at home) found this to be a little too sweet and not tart enough for a lemon pie. It was ok and should I make it again I'll use less sugar TFS
