Classic Lemon Meringue Pie #lemonmeringuecupcakes



Lemon Meringue Pie Ingredients: Pastry for 9-inch one crust pie Meringue Topping (see recipe below) 2 tablespoons graham cracker crumbs (optional) 1 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup cornstarch 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups water 6 eggs (yolks and whites separated into individual bowls), yolks slightly beaten* 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest 1/2 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (approximately 2 to 3 lemons) 2 tablespoons butter

* Use fresh eggs to make meringue, and these fresh eggs should be at room temperature.  Old eggs simply will not produce the fluffy volume required by meringue.
