Lemon Pie

This recipe is a favorite of my sister.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups water
  • 4 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. butter
  • Ad
  • 2 lemons
  • rind of one lemon

Directions:

Bring water to boiling point in saucepan. Thoroughly mix cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Add to boiling water, stirring constantly to prevent lumping. Stir until thickened. Cook about 5 minutes over low heat. Stir a small amount of the mixture into the slightly beaten egg yolks; return to pan and cook slightly. Stir constantly. Remove from heat. Add butter, lemon juice, and grated rind. Beat thoroughly. Cool.

Place in a baked shell, and cover with meringue made from the whites. Bake in 300 degree F. oven until delicately colored, about 20 minutes. Meringue: Add 2 Tbsp. sugar to egg whites. Beat until it forms stiff peaks.

I'm thinking you must have meant 1 1/2 sticks of butter, right? 1 1/2 pounds would mean six sticks of butter in one pie! Come to think of it, 1 1/2 sticks even seems like too much. What am I missing?

<b>Editor's Note:</b> No doubt that is way too much. I have changed it to 1 1/2 Tablespoons. We'll contact Robin to be sure of the amount.
