This is a very smooth, lemony and rich pie. It makes a super special dessert!

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups cold water
3 egg yolks, slightly beaten
Grated peel of 1 lemon
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp. margarine
1 baked 9-inch pie shell
3 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C).

In medium saucepan combine 1 cup sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in water until smooth. Stir in egg yolks. Stirring constantly, bring to boil over medium heat; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in next 3 ingredients (the grated lemon peel, lemon juice and the margarine). Spoon hot filling into baked 9-inch pie crust.

In small mixer bowl beat egg whites at high speed until foamy. Gradually beat in the 1/3 cup sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over filling; sealing to crust. Bake in 350 degree F (180 C) oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Cool on rack; refrigerate.

Makes 8 servings.
