  • In large bowl, cream together sugar, cornmeal, lemon juice, butter and egg yolks for 5 minutes or more until creamy.
  • Gently fold beaten egg whites into this lemon mixture.
  • Gently pour filling into pie crust.
  • Bake about 15 minutes or until top of pie begins to brown.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes or more until pie is just set in the middle.
  • It should be a little jiggly, not runny, in the middle.
  • Remove from oven and cool.
  • It can be refrigerated, but is best served at room temperature.
  • Covered, this pie will keep unrefrigerated for up to 4 days; however, it won't last that long!
