Recipe for #20 : Wheat free lemon meringue pie - by Hazel Chan

Ingredients  (recipe adapted from ARGO cornstarch packaging)
  • 1 (9 inch) baked deep dish pie crust (see another recipe below for wheat free pie crust – my own variation of substituting with wheat free flour mixture and vegetable margarine)
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 5 egg  yolks, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp grated lemon peel
  • 2 Tbsp margarine (I use vegetable margarine)
  • 5 egg whites
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch

  1. Mix cornstarch, 1 cup sugar, water and egg yolks in saucepan over medium heat. Stirring constantly, bring mixture to a boil (about 8 minutes), reduce heat and continue stirring for one minute until very thick. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter until smooth.
  2. Pour hot filling into pie crust
  3. Beat egg whites in mixer at high speed until soft peaks form, gradually add ½ cup sugar and 2 tsp cornstarch, beating until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes
  4. Top pie by spooning meringue over hot pie filling, making sure meringue touches edge of pie crust to seal. Use the back of  a spoon to swirl meringue and draw up into peaks.
  5. Bake in preheated 375F oven for 10 minutes, until peaks are lightly browned
  6. Cool at room temperature for 30 minutes. Chill for a minimum 3 hours before serving.
Recipe for wheat free and vegetable margarine Pie Crust
  • 100g vegetable margarine/butter
  • 40 icing sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 200g wheat free flour mixture (rice flour, tapioca flour and
  • cornstarch – 1:1:1)
  • ½ tsp Xanthum gum
  1. Beat butter and icing sugar till creamy. Add eggs and mix well. Add flour and mix until dough holds together.
  2. Press dough into pie shell and bake at 180C for 5 minutes.
