Meringue That Will Not Bead or Create Wateriness

Recipe by foodtvfan
READY IN: 25mins
YIELD: 1 pie




  • Place the egg whites, ice water and baking powder in a medium bowl and beat vigorously with wire whisk or electric mixer until egg whites are very stiff.
  • Test with a fork; if the fork will stand up vertically in the whites, the mixture has been beaten sufficiently.
  • Now fold in each Tablespoon of sugar gradually.
  • When all the sugar has been added, whip the mixture again until stiff.
  • When covering the pie with the meringue, make sure that the crust is covered and sealed at the pastry edges to prevent weeping.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Bake pie for at least 5 but not over 7 minutes. Be careful to watch the baking time for the degree of brownness desired.
  • Cool on wire rack, and refrigerate as usual.
