  • Stir a small amount of the hot mixture into the egg yolks, and then return this to the hot mixture. Cook and stir for one minute. Cool filling to lukewarm, and then add the nuts. Pour into the cooled pie shell.

  • Beat egg whites with cream of tartar to soft peaks. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar; beat until stiff peaks form, and all the sugar is dissolved. Spread meringue on pie, carefully sealing to the edges.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 12 to 15 minutes.

In whole this pie is interesting and delicious but I think it needs one modification. It was very sweet in spite of using only 1/2 cup white sugar instead of 3/4. Next time I will definately cut the sugar to 1/4 cup or maybe more. Thanks Rosina for a great idea. Read More
