RECIPE - Dick Francisís Lemon Meringue Pie


Dick Francisís Lemon Meringue Pie

Recipe by Dick Francis

Ingredients

3 tbsp cornstarch
1 ľ cups warm water
juice of 1 lemon and grated rind
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
3 eggs, separated
1 tsp vanilla
1 baked pie crust

Method

Mix the cornstarch with sugar (except for three tablespoons), then add the beaten egg yolk, warm water, lemon juice and rind. Cook in a pan over hot water until thick to avoid burning filling. Cool and pour into baked pie shell. Beat egg whites until stiff, adding three tablespoons of sugar and the vanilla. Top pie with beaten egg whites. Brown in oven (350 degrees F) for 10 minutes, turn off heat, and leave in oven with door open until cool. If you bring it out to room temperature too quickly, the egg whites are apt to fall.
