I know pretty much everyone has a recipe for lemon meringue pie, but this one turned out so much better than other ones I've tasted. I bake almost everything from scratch and still I used the Sheriff lemon pie mix all the time! This recipe is super simple and was amazing.

Lemon Meringue Pie

6 tbsp corn starch
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup + 6 tbsp sugar
2 cups water
3 egg yolks
1 tbsp butter    
6 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
3 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 baked 9″ pie crust


Mix cornstarch, salt, 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup cold water in a saucepan. Slowly add 1-1/2 cups hot water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Boil for about a minute, then add a little hot mixture into the egg yolks. Blend the egg yolks into the sugar mixture.

Cook and stir for another minute, then remove from heat. Add butter, lemon juice, lemon zest and rind. Cool slightly, and pour into your baked pie shell. Set aside and make meringue.

Combine the egg whites and cream of tartar, beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 6 tbsp sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Spread it over the filling, and make sure you seal the filling by spreading the meringue right to the crust. Pop it in the oven at 400 for about 5-10 minutes. Watch your meringue people you dont want to wreck your beautiful pie on the last step!

It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

I would sell my virtue (harhar, jokes on you! I don't have any left!) for a good lemon meringue pie...I like your recipe, it looks simple and straightforward (as are the best pie recipes!)
will have to try to make this soon!
