    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Unfold the pie crust and place in a 9-inch pie plate, pressing the crust firmly into the plate, then flute if desired. Bake the pie shell according to the package directions; let cool.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar, the cornstarch, and salt; mix well. Gradually whisk in the water and milk, stirring until the cornstarch is dissolved. Cook over medium heat, whisking until the mixture comes to a boil.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks. Gradually whisk in about 1/2 cup of the milk mixture, then whisk the yolk mixture back into the saucepan. Simmer over low heat for 2 to 3 minutes,whisking occasionally.
    4. 4
      Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter and lemon juice. Pour the filling into the pie shell; set aside.
    5. 5
      Preheat the oven to 350. In a medium bowl, with an electric beater, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form, making meringue.
    6. 6
      Spread the meringue over the pie filling, sealing to the edges of the crust. Using a spatula or the back of a tablespoon, form peaks in the meringue, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the meringue is golden. Let cool, then slice and serve.

      Trying to learn to make lemon pie and decided to give this a try. I used a large stone pie plate and the recipe did not make enough filling so had to make a second batch and add to it. This might have caused my problem as the filling was not completly set and turned out runny (maybe I didn't cook it long enough - possible) However; it looked wonderful and the flavor of the lemon was good, though I'd cut down on the sugar next time (I prefer tart over sweet). All in all a pretty simple recipe and knowing what I do now, will make again with these small changes. Thanks Internetnut for a good recipe.
