 Ingredients List

  • 2 1/4 c Sugar
  • 4 tb Cornstarch
  • 4 tb Flour
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 2 c Water
  • 4 Eggs, separated
  • 1 tb Grated lemon rind
  • 6 tb Lemon juice
  • 2 tb Lemon extract
  • 4 oz Can toasted coconut chips
  • 1 Recipe plain pastry for 1 9
  • -inch crust


Prepare pastry recipe. Roll out to a 12 " round on a lightly floured
pastry cloth or board; fit into a 9" pie plate. Trim overhang to 1/2";
turn under flush with rim & flute to make a stand-up edge; prick well all
over with a fork.

Bake in hot oven, 425, for 15 minutes or until golden; cool completely on a
wire rack

Mix 1-3/4 cups of the sugar, cornstarch, flour, and salt in a medium-size

Heat water to boiling in a medium-size saucepan. Lower heat to medium;
slowly add sugar mixture, stirring gently but constantly. Cook, stirring
constantly, 5 to 7 minutes or until mixture holds a line when cut with a
spoon; remove from heat at once. Do not let mixture boil.

Beat egg yolks slightly in bowl; stir in 1/2 cup hot mixture; quickly stir
back into mixture in saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly over medium heat,
for 3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat.

Stir in lemon rind, juice, butter or margarine until blended. Pour into
cool pastry shell.

Beat egg whites with lemon extract until foamy, white and double in volume
in bowl. Sprinkle in 1/2 cup sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating all the
time until sugar dissolves and meringue stands in firm peaks.

Pile onto hot filling, spreading to edge of crust. This keeps meringue from
shrinking. Sprinkle with coconut chips, or place them in a pretty pattern
on top.

Bake in moderate oven, 350 F degrees, 12 minutes, or until peaks of
meringue are a golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack before cutting
