Florida Orange Meringue Pie

How to make a Florida Orange Meringue Pie

Who wants pie? Who wants pie?

Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt in 1-1/2 quart saucepan. Stir in orange and lemon juices gradually. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and bubbles. Stir in orange sections and boil for 3 to 4 minutes.

Mix 1/4 of hot orange mixture with slightly beaten egg yolks; then blend all back into orange mixture in saucepan. Continue to boil and stir for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in orange and lemon rind.

Pour into baked pie shell. Top with meringue.

Meringue: Beat the four egg whites until foamy. Then add 1/2 cup sugar slowly, by tablespoons, until beaten stiff and glossy. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

Spread the meringue so it covers the orange filling. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes until the meringue is a delicate brown. Cool and eat.
