Process

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Step 2

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add water and stir until fully combined.

Step 3

Add the butter or margarine and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat while stirring constantly. Boil for one minute, then reduce heat to low and cook for an additional two minutes while stirring constantly.

Step 4

Remove from heat and slowly add about half of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks while stirring rapidly; this will temper them so they don't scramble when added directly to the hot mixture.

Step 5

Pour back the remaining hot mixture into the saucepan and return the pan to the stovetop over medium heat; stir for another two minutes until thickened further. Remove from heat again and stir in lemon zest, juice and butter or margarine until completely incorporated.

Step 6

To make the meringue topping, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until foamy; add sugar one tablespoon at a time while continuing to beat until soft peaks form (the whites should hold their shape but still be soft).

Step 7

Finally, add cream of tartar with the last tablespoon of sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form (the whites should hold their shape without drooping). Set aside while you prepare your pie crust.

Step 8

Prepare the crust using vanilla cake premix according to the instructions given on the box. Pour cooled filling into the crust and spread it evenly using a spoon or spatula. Top with spoonfuls of meringue topping and spread gently with a spatula so it covers the entire surface filling right up to the edges of the crust all around the side.

Step 9

Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Cool completely before slicing and serving! Enjoy!

Step 10

To top it off, if desired you can use chocolate ganache or whipped cream on your pie to make it extra delicious for your palate.
