Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. If your pie crust isn’t already baked follow these directions and add 45 minutes to the time of the recipe. Place your homemade or store-bought pie crust into a 9 inch pie pan; line crust with parchment paper and fill with pie weights {or dry beans}. Bake crust until lightly browned, around 40 minutes. Carefully lift and remove paper with pie weights and allow crust to cool.
  3. In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Stir in butter.
  4. Place egg yolks in a small bowl and gradually whisk in ½ cup of hot sugar mixture. Whisk egg yolk mixture back into remaining sugar mixture. Bring to a boil and continue to cook while stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat.
  5. Pour filling into baked pastry shell.
  6. In a large bowl whip egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Gently spread meringue over pie making sure to seal the edges at the crust.
  7. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until meringue is golden brown.
