Pie Crust Mix

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Prepare pie crust as directed on package for a one crust pie. Bake 12 – 15 minutes. Let cool. For filling, whisk together eggs, egg yolks and sugar until light yellow. Add cornstarch and salt. Stir in lemon juice, water and butter. Transfer mixture to a non-aluminum saucepan. Stir constantly over medium until mixture is thick and starts to bubble. Boil for 1 minute. Spread evenly into pie crust. Cover with plastic wrap placed directly on top of filling. Refrigerate for 2 – 3 hours.

Preheat oven to 350°.

For meringue, whisk together sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Add water and bring to a boil on high, whisking constantly. Boil 1 minute, whisking constantly. Transfer mixture to a small measuring cup. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites on high just until foamy. Add salt and beat until soft peaks form. With mixer running, pour in cornstarch mixture in a fine stream. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over pie filling, making sure mixture touches edge of crust. Bake 13 – 15 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool completely.
