Ann, this is Delicious! It has a bit more substance than regular meringue, and “I don’t like tears in my pies” either. I know it drives my mom crazy when she bakes them and gets tears, so I’ll have to share this one with her. I paired this up with Lennie’s Old-Fashioned Banana Cream Pie. Our DD’s eyes rather rolled back in her head with enjoyment as she tasted it, followed by mmmm, and I know she told me at least twice how good it was. DH has some in his lunch for tomorrow, a really nice Monday treat. We Will be making this one again! Thank-you. I’ll have to try this meringue on a chocolate-from-scratch meringue pie next…lol
She is right. I have used this meringue for years and it not only does not weep it holds up well so unfinished pie/dessert is good the following day.Not quite as light as sugar & egg white only meringue but it makes up for that in its reliability. a good addition to the collection!
The meringue was great! And it was my first time ever making meringue, though it is something I have always loved to eat. I think the cornstarch did give it a slightly heavier texture though, but still good!! I teamed it with Lennie's Old-Fashioned Banana Cream Pie #14979. It went very well together. Totally encouraged, I am off to look for a good lemon meringue pie. :)
I've never much luck with meringues but this one turned out really good. Will definetly keep this one. Thnx for sharing.
This worked beautifully! I used my Kitchenaid mixer with the whisk attachment. This recipe made a nice high meringue. I made my pie the day before and put it in the fridge overnight. I used it for Mom's Most Requested Chocolate Pie #86306.
It was my first time to make a lemon pie and decided to do the Weepless Meringue but unfortunately, it was unsuccessful maybe because I did not beat it with my hand mixer. But I did not give up, I removed the old topping, made it again, but this time, I used my hand mixer and mixed the egg whites first till it became foamy. Then I added the rest of all the ingredients and beat them again until very stiff and very foamy. This time it was a success! Thank you!
Thought this would be traditional meringue but it turned out terribly for me. The flavor was just off and it tasted terrible. The consistency was also very strange. After the 20+ minutes it took to beat the egg whites the whole thing ended up in the garbage.
My mother used to have this recipe and it got lost over the years. Thanks so much for "finding" it for me. I is just wonderful, so easy and it doesn't cry.
Miss Annie, I didn't have any tears. Thanks for sharing!
This meringue is easier to apply and keeps well. The cornstarch addition is ingenious!! It is not as light and fluffy, as other reviewers have said, but it is delicious and holds its shape well. I will be using this technique in the future! I topped banana pudding with it. Thanks, Miss Annie!!!
