    PaulaG's Note:

    Are you tired of weepy, sticky meringue? This meringue will not let you down. It stands proud and adorns your favorite pie with a delicious mound of delicate meringue. The cook time does not reflect the time to cool the cornstarch mixture. This recipe is from one of my all time favorite cookbooks-- More Make-A-Mix Cookery,

      To reach a true mile high meringue more egg whites are needed. Additionally, making the simple syrup is an unnecessary step. The same results (mediocre meringue) could have been reached with three egg whites and two-three tbsps of sugar baking for 12-15 minutes or your desired brownness.
