  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (chilled)
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • 5 tablespoons ice water
  • FILLING:

  • Beat until the meringue forms stiff peaks. Add cream of tartar and beat just enough to mix thoroughly. Do not over beat.
  • Spoon the meringue on top of the pie filling and spread evenly over the pie, making sure it is spread so that it is touching the crust around all the edges. Make small peaks in the meringue to give it a finished appearance.
