This is a Taste of Home recipe I have in one of my recipe files that I had on my "to make lists" that I have not gotten around to YET.

RECIPE IS FROM TASTE OF HOME

**"I found this recipe while vacationing in Florida in the late '60s. I made a few changes and added lime juice for extra tartness. It's colorful, refreshing and looks so pretty on the plate". -June Nehmer, Las Vegas, Nevada**

How to Make Orange Meringue Pie...Cin

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, combine the cracker crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

    For filling, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan. Whisk in orange juice and water until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Gradually stir 1 cup hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the lime juice, orange peel and butter. Pour hot filling into pie crust.

    For the meringue, beat egg whites in a bowl until foamy. add cream of tartar; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over hot filling, sealing edges to crust.

    Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour; refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 6-8 servings.
