Recipe for Angel Pie

I am looking for a recipe for a pie my mother used to make for me. We called it Angel pie. It was a white pie filling topped with whipping cream and sprinkled with walnuts.

3 large eggs separated

1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup hulled Walnuts


1/2 cup sugar

1 tablespoon lemon zest grated

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 cup whipped topping, prepared

In Food processor add all walnuts but 2 or 3 for garnish.

Add 2 tablespoons of white sugar, Set aside


Heat oven to 275 degrees F.

Grease 9-inch pie pan. In a small bowl, beat egg whites (keep yolks) with cream of tartar until frothy. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating continuously until stiff peaks are formed. Spread walnut mixture evenly, on bottom of pan.

Then Spread over bottom and to the sides of prepared pie pan. Meringue puffs up during baking, so spread only to top edge of pan. Bake for 55 - 60 minutes.

Turn oven off. Leave crust in oven to cool and dry. In small saucepan, combine filling ingredients except whipped cream.

Cook over low heat until thickened stirring constantly. Cool. Fold into whipped cream. Pour into meringue shell. Refrigerate until next day. I got this out of my Granny's cook book scribbled in. I don't know who's recipe this is good luck. Ellen
