  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 1 3/4 c Water
  • 5 Egg yolks; slightly beaten
  • 2 tb Butter or margarine

Blend cornstarch, sugar & salt in saucepan. Stir in water gradually. Cook

1 minute. Stir half the mixture slowly into egg yolks. Stir yolk mixture
into saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, 2 minutes longer.
Remove from heat. Add butter, lemon rind & juice. Cool slightly. Pour into
pastry shell. Heat oven to 350. Beat egg whites & cream of tartar until
foamy. Add 1/2 cup sugar gradually. Continue beating until meringue forms
