Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe

Today I bring you a yummy recipe I tried this weekend: Lemon Meringue Pie. It´s delicious!

1 pie crust, baked
300 g white sugar
3 g salt
355 ml water
65 g cornstarch
80 ml water
4 eggs, separated
120 ml lemon juice
4 g lemon zest
45 g butter
2 g salt
100 g white sugar

Preheat oven. Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, salt, and 1 1/2 cups water in a saucepan. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and 1/3 cup water to make a smooth paste. Gradually whisk into boiling sugar mixture. Boil mixture until thick and clear, stirring constantly. Remove from heat.
In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolks and lemon juice. Gradually whisk egg yolk mixture into hot sugar mixture. Return pan to heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in grated lemon rind and butter or margarine. Place mixture in refrigerator and cool until just lukewarm.
In a large glass or metal bowl, combine egg whites and salt. Whip until foamy. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar while continuing to whip. Beat until whites form stiff peaks. Stir about 3/4 cup of meringue into lukewarm filling. Spoon filling into baked pastry shell. Cover pie with remaining meringue.
Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, until meringue is slightly brown. Cool 1 hour before cutting.
