Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe
  • Combine flour, shortening, salt, milk, and mix until well blended. Form dough into a ball and then flatten. Roll out dough and put into a 9 inch pie plate.
  • Bake at 350°F until crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a sauce pan.
  • Beat egg yolks and cold water together and add to the mixture in the saucepan; and then add the lemon juice and butter.
  • Pour in the boiling water and bring this mixture to a full boil; boil for one minute.
  • Remove from the heat and add the lemon extract; stir to mix well and then pour into the baked pie crust.
  • Beat egg whites to a soft peak; and then add the powdered sugar and cream of tartar. Beat until whites form stiff peaks.
  • Spread over pie filling and bake at 350°F until meringue is golden brown. It is best to let the pie cool before serving to allow the filling to firm up.
