Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Slowly beat in 1 cup sugar, then 2 teaspoons lemon rind; continue to beat until very stiff and glossy, about 10 minutes. Spoon meringue into well buttered pie plate, and spread evenly to form a shell. Bake at 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) for 50 minutes, until firm. Cool.
  2. Beat egg yolks, slowly adding remaining 1 cup sugar, beat until thick. Mix cornstarch with lemon juice, and add to yolk mixture. Stir in water and 2 teaspoons lemon rind. Cook over low heat until thick and bubbling. Remove and chill, covering with plastic wrap to keep film from forming on surface.
  3. Beat whipping cream, and fold into cold lemon custard. Spoon into meringue shell. Cover, and chill 3 to 4 hours before serving.

I am not even sure where to start with this review. I noted others and cut the meringue mix down by one egg white and it was still way too much, so I decided to pipe it onto parchment paper ins...

I made two pies one "Key Lime Pie VII" and the Lemon Cloud Pie II. The Key Lime was excellent, but I received rave reviews for the Lemon Cloud. It was the hands down favorite. It is a bit of wor...

Yum, delicious. I made it for a dinner party and even those who claimed to hate lemon and meringue licked their plates clean. A real winner.

Very good pie Carol. I'm not a fan of whipped cream so I used Cool Whip instead. Could have been a bit more tart for our tastes, however, all in all, a light and refreshing dessert that I'll mak...

I used to make a similar pie in the 70's and had lost the recipe. It's labor-intensive, but well worth the effort. You'll get rave reviews if you serve this to guests (unless your family gobbl...

My grandmother, Jessie Hammer would make this lemon 'angel pie' for our Easter dinners. The only difference is... she added a third layer to the top ~ whipped cream. My mother carried on the tra...

I went to an Oscar party with movie themed food, so I made this "cloud" pie for "UP IN THE AIR". the movie didn't win but this pie was heavenly. It is time consuming to make ,but worth it.

I'm not sure what I did wrong but this recipe barely worked out for me at all. The meringue crust was way too much for one pie shell but because I had never made anything like it before wasn't s...
