LEMON MERINGUE PIE

Ingredients

For Pie Filling:
Pastry for single-crust 9-inch pie
2-1/4 cups water
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice or frozen lemon juice concentrate*
1/2 cup cornstarch
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1-1/2 cups Equal Spoonful or Granulated**
2 tablespoons stick butter or margarine
1 to 2 drops yellow food coloring (optional)

For Meringue:
3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream tartar
2/3 cup Equal Spoonful or Granulated***
* Such as Minute Maid Premium Lemon juice (frozen) 100% Pure Lemon Juice from Concentrate

** May substitute 36 packets Equal sweetener

Directions

1 – For Pie Filling, roll pastry on floured surface into circle 1 inch larger than inverted 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into plate; trim and flute edge. Pierce bottom and side of pastry with fork. Bake in preheated 425F oven 10 to 12 minutes or until pastry is golden. Cool on wire rack.
2 – Combine water, lemon juice and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Beat eggs, 2 egg whites and lemon peel in medium bowl. Mix in 1-1/2 cups Equal. Stir about half of hot cornstarch mixture into egg mixture.
3 – Return all to saucepan. Cook and stir over low heat 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in butter until melted. Stir in food coloring, if desired. Pour mixture over baked pie shell.
4 – For Meringue, beat 3 egg whites in mixing bowl on medium speed of mixer until foamy. Add cream of tartar. Beat to soft peaks. Gradually beat in 2/3 cup Equal, beating to stiff peaks. Spread meringue over hot lemon filling, carefully sealing to edge of crust to prevent shrinking or weeping.
5 – Bake pie in 425F oven about 5 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned.
6 – Cool completely on wire rack. Cut pie into wedges.
