Two cups of water, 1-1/2 cups of sugar, 2 rounding tablespoonfuls of
corn starch, 4 eggs, 1 tablespoonful of butter, 2 small lemons. Mix
the water, sugar and corn starch dissolved in a little cold water,
pour in sauce-pan, place on range and stir mixture until thickened.
Beat separately the yolks of 4 eggs and the whites of 2, then add both
to the above mixture. Remove from the fire, add the juice of two small
lemons and grated rind of one; add butter. Fill two previously baked
pastry shells with the cooled mixture. Beat the remaining whites of
egg (another white of an egg added improves the appearance of the
pie.) Add one tablespoonful of pulverized sugar to each egg used;
place the stiffly beaten whites of egg rockily over tops of pies stand
in oven until a delicate shade of brown. This is a delicious pie.
