  1. Preheat oven to 400°f.
  2. In a medium sized pot, mix 1/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cups sugar substitute. Over medium heat, gradually stir in cornstarch, water, orange juice, and egg yolk.
  3. Stir mixture until it boils and thickens. Let boil one minute and remove from heat.
  4. Stir in margarine, 1 tbs orange zest, and lemon juice.
  5. Pour hot mixture into pie shell and set aside.
  6. In an electric mixer, combine 3 egg whites and cream of tartar. Mix until slightly frothy, then add 2 tbs sugar, 4 tbs sugar substitute, and vanilla extract.
  7. Mix on high until meringue is stiff.
  8. Scoop meringue gently onto cooling pie filling. Pull meringue gently to the edge of pie shell to prevent shrinking away from the shell when fully cooled.

  10. Bake about 8 minutes or until meringue is golden brown.
  11. Garnish with remaining 1 tbs of orange zest.
