Cooking Recipes Catalogue

For this old-fashioned pie, lemon extract is added to the cooked and creamy vinegar custard just before it 's poured into the waiting crust. Lots of egg whites are whipped into a meringue and piled on top of the filling before it 's baked.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Mix sugar and flour, add vinegar and beaten egg yolks. Mix well.
  • Add 1 cup hot water. Heat remaining 1 1/2 cups water to boiling and stir in egg yolk mixture. Boil mixture until thick. Remove from heat.
  • Add lemon extract and butter. Cool. Pour into a baked pie shell.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Beat egg whites until stiff; add 6 Tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar and continue beating until it holds a peak. Pile meringue onto filling. Bake until meringue is lightly browned, 10 - 15 minutes.
