    How long does it take for the corn starch mixture to become clear? Will it be completely clear or just opaque?

    Do I add the meringue while the filling is still hot?

    I have made this meringue multiple times and has always turned out great. I am making pies for our church picnic & the meringue for my pies gets soupy. It is cloudy & humid outside, could that be what is causing that?

    Can you remove chilled chocolate pies (baked) from the frig and use the meringue after it’s warmed to room temp?

    I made this recipe to put on top of a banana pudding. So, After cooking in the oven... as it cooled my meringue shrank, cried and had little beads are on top. So... 1) I wonder if my cornstarch was mixture was too think. As soon as I put in the boiling water, it thickened a bit. I continued to cook it for about 1-2 minutes. After it cooled it was like “almost ready” jello. Thus, I had to spoon it into the egg white mixture. Or Did I cook it too long? Or... 2) I wound up trying to brown in a 350 oven but it took like 25-20 for it to start browning. Did I cook the banana pudding too long? Or 3) I also put the egg whites in the fridge while I was making the pudding part. Did this cause it to weep? Help!!!
