Taste the sweetness of life by eating this awesome Lemon Meringue Pie! I love how perfectly the flavors incorporate with each other. I usually let the crust toast a little. I think it doesn’t get any better than a slightly toasted crust. Feel free to add more amounts of the ingredients if you feel like it. Give this one a try today and surprise your family and friends with the amazing taste of this pie. Enjoy!


1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups water

2 tablespoons butter
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 (9 inches) pie crust, baked
