  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

How to Make It

  1. Combine 1 1/4 cups sugar, cornstarch, butter, lemon rind, salt, and egg yolks in a heavy saucepan; stir well. Pour boiling water over sugar mixture, stirring well. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until thickened and bubbly, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in pineapple and lemon juice. Pour filling into pastry shell.
