Grandma’s Lemon Meringue Pie. This is my favorite part about doing this blog. Taking old family recipes and sharing them with family and friends. This is a recipe that belonged to my Grandma Zelda. From the looks of the recipe, it had been used many, many times. If you make it, you will see why.
For the filling
Ingredients you will need, Flour, Sugar, Salt, Cornstarch, Lemons, Eggs, Water, and a pre-baked 9″ Pie Crust. This is the recipe I used for the Pie Crust.
First of all, remove the rind and juice 2 lemons, set aside.
Mix together sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
Separate eggs. Beat egg yolks slightly. Put the egg whites in a mixing bowl and save for the meringue topping.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, then add the sugar mixture. Stir and cook over medium-low to medium heat until thick and no longer milky looking. This takes several minutes.
