Gay as a daisy—meringue holds white capped billows of lemon filling


  • 9" Meringue Pie Shell
  • 4 egg yolks
  • ½ c. sugar
  • ¼ c. lemon juice
  • 1 tblsp. grated lemon peel
  • 1 c. heavy cream, whipped


  • Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually beat in sugar. Stir in lemon juice and peel. Cook over simmering water, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick, about 5 to 8 minutes. Mixture should be thick enough to mound slightly when dropped from spoon. Cool.
