DIRECTIONS

  • Refrigerate pie crust until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • In a bowl, combine the sugar and flour; use a whisk to stir them together well.
  • Add in the milk, lemon juice, butter, and lemon rind.
  • Stir to mix everything together.
  • Add in the egg yolks and stir well.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites until they swell up into thick, puffy white clouds, which hold their shape in soft peaks.
  • Using a spatula or a large wooden spoon, fold the egg whites gently into the lemon filling, scooping and lifting to combine the two mixtures evenly.
  • Pour the filling into the piecrust.
  • Place the pie on the bottom rack of the oven, and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Decrease oven temperature to 350° and bake until the filling is fairly firm, dry, and puffed up, 20-25 minutes.
  • Place the pie on a cooling rack or a folded kitchen towel and let cool to room temperature.
