Best Ever Lemon Meringue Pie
My husband loves Lemon Pie, so I had to try it. To this day I still make this.
My granddaughter made this a few months back and fell in love with it. The picture showing is the one she made. The recipe is very simple. You definitely won't be disappointed.

Cook over boiling water until thick- about 20 minutes. ( This does away with the starchy taste.)
1 tablespoon of cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 cup boiling water
Three egg whites
6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of salt
Blend cornstarch and cold water in a sauce pan.
Add boiling water and cook, stirring until clear and thickened.
Let stand until completely cold.
Gradually add sugar and beat until stiff but not dry. Turn mixer to low-speed and add salt and vanilla.
Turn mixer again to high and beat well.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until top is lightly brown.
