Violet's Lemon Meringue Pie

Pie Filling

1 1/4 cups sugar
1/8 tsp salt
6 tbsp cornstarch
2  cups boiling water
grated rind of 1 lemon
1/4 cup butter (Mom told me she didn't add butter to hers)
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup lemon juice

Meringue Topping

3 egg whites
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp lemon juice
6 tbsp sugar

Baked 9-inch pastry shell

In medium saucepan, mix sugar, salt and cornstarch. Add water and lemon rind. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly; simmer 10 minutes. Add butter, but do not stir. Mix egg yolks with lemon juice; gradually whisk into hot mixture. Pour into pastry shell and bake in 400'F oven for 10 minutes.

Beat egg whites till stiff peaks form. Add remaining ingredients. Pile meringue on top of baked filling, spreading to edges. Reduce heat to 350'F and bake for 18 minutes until lightly browned on top.
