I have NO idea why I keep gaining weight during this time of Quarantine! What could it be???
On a completely unrelated note, here is a Lemon Meringue Pie I made today that is amazing.
Lemon Meringue Pie
- 1 1/2 cup sugar (plus 6 Tbsp. for meringue)
- 3 Tbsp. Cornstarch
- 3 Tbsp. Flour
- dash of salt
- 1 1/2 cup hot water
- 3 slightly beaten egg yolks (save the whites for meringue)
- 2 Tbsp. Butter
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 9″ pie shell (I prebaked mine)
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
In saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch, flour and salt. Gradually add hot water, stirring constantly. Cook and stir over hgih heat until mixture comes to boiling. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes. Stir small amount of this hot mixture into the egg yolks, then add these tempered yolks to your hot mixture. Bring back to boiling and cook 2 minutems more. Add butter and lemon juice, mixing well. Pour into pastry shell. Make meringue (see below). Spread meringue over filling. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Beat 3 reserved egg whites with vanilla and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually add 6 Tbsp. of sugar, beating until stiff peaks form and all sugar is dissolved.
