I love lemons. My family loves my lemon meringue pie. It is my brother's favorite pie and he loves it. I make it for Christmas, Thanksgiving and more holidays.

How to Make Lemon Meringue Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. In a saucepan combine the sugar and cornstarch. Add the water and cook over medium heat, stirring consistency until thickened. Bring the mixture to a boil, and boil for 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat. In a medium bowl beat the egg yolks lightly. Pour a small amount of the hot liquid into the egg yolks, stirring constantly. Return the yolk mixture to the saucepan, stirring constantly. Bring the mixture to a boil, and boil until thickened. Blend in the butter, lemon juice, and lemon rind.
