Lemon Meringue Dessert

Lemon Meringue Pie

This is a favorite family recipe, and has been very popular every time I've taken it somewhere so I thought I would share the recipe:-)


1 package (1-lb 2.25-oz) pudding-included yellow cake mix
1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 egg

1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch
Dash salt
1 3/4 cups water
4 eggs yolks, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/2 cup lemon juice

4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13 x 9-inch pan. In large bowl, combine cake mix, 1/2 cup margarine and egg; mix at low speed until crumbly. Press mixture in bottom of greased pan.

In medium saucepan, combine 1 1/3 cups sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in water; blend until smooth. Cook over medium heat until mixture boils, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir about 1/2 cup of hot mixture into egg yolks; return egg mixture to saucepan. Cook until mixture is bubbly. (Mixture will be very thick.) Remove from heat; stir in 2 tablespoons margarine, and lemon juice. Pour filling over crust.

In small bowl, beat egg whites at medium speed until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup sugar 1 tablespoon at a time, beating at high speed until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spread meringue over hot filling. Bake at 350°F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until meringue is golden brown. Cool 1 hour. Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Cut into squares. Enjoy:-)

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
