LEMON PIE. MRS. P. O. SHARPLESS.
One lemon; grate the yellow rind and squeeze the juice. One scant cup
sugar, two tablespoons of flour (rounded full), the yolks of two eggs,
beat until light; then add one and a half cups of boiling water, in
which has been melted a heaping tablespoonful of butter; lastly, add
three drops of vanilla extract. When baked, cover with the whites of
two eggs, beaten to a stiff froth with four tablespoonfuls of sugar.
Return to the oven until it is a very delicate brown. This makes two
small pies, or one large one.
