1 baked pie crust-not too brown
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups cold water
3 egg yolks, beaten slightly (save whites to make a meringue)
grated peel of 1 lemon
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter

In a medium size heavy saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch. Gradually stir in the cold water until smooth. (I like to use with a whisk.) Stir in the egg yolks and stirring constantly bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon peel, lemon juice and butter. Spoon hot filling into the crust. Spread your favorite recipe of meringue over the top being sure to seal to the edges. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown.
