How to Make It

Step 1

Combine sugar and cornstarch in top of a double boiler, stirring well. Add egg yolks, butter, lemon rind and juice, salt, and water; beat with a wire whisk. Cook over boiling water until smooth and thickened, beating constantly with wire whisk. Remove from heat. Spoon mixture into tart shells.

Step 2

Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until foamy. Gradually add powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over filling of each tart, sealing to edge of pastry. Bake at 350° for 6 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Cool before serving.
