Default TNT Lemon Meringue Pie

Peep's TNT Lemon Meringue Pie


1 1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. plus 1 Tbls. cornstarch
1 1/2 c. water
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
3 Tbls. Butter
2 tsp. grated lemon peel (zest)
1/2 c. fresh lemon juice
2 drops yellow food color (optional)
1 - 9 inch (blind) baked pie shell
(Meringue recipe below)

Preheat oven 400F. Mix cornstarch and sugar in 1 quart saucepan. Stir in water gradually. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir at least half of the hot mixture gradually into egg yolks. Blend into hot mixture in saucepan. Boil and stir 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter, lemon peel, lemon juice and food color. Pour into baked pie shell.
Spoon meringue onto hot pie filling; spread over filling, carefully sealing meringue to edge of crust to prevent shrinking or weeping.
Bake until delicate brown, about 10 minutes. Cool away from draft. Refrigerate any remaining pie immediately.

Meringue:
3 egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
6 Tbls. Sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Beat eggs whites and cream of tartar until foamy (I use my kitchen aid stand mixer with a copper bowl insert which reacts with whites and makes a stiff meringue). Beat in sugar, 1 Tbls. at a time; continue beating stiff and glossy. DO NOT UNDERBEAT. Beat in vanilla.

(not very good lighting)

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.
