The Exact Place
My dear Book Club friends finally got together Sunday. Here are the photos from
Podso . It was a Sunday Afternoon Tea with one recipe from Margie Haack's book:
The Exact Place. I found the book richer after being with these dear friends, especially
one who is here from Germany. Here is the lemon pie with meringue as the crust that
I made from the book. There's Margie below! Check her out at Ransom Fellowship.
Grandma Frolander’s Angel Pie
4 egg whites
1/4 t. cream of tartar
1 cup sugar
Beat egg whites and until foamy. Gradually add cream of tartar and sugar, beating until meringue stands in stiff peaks. Spread in a buttered 9 inch pie plate. Or shape into 9 small meringues on a sheet of parchment on a baking sheet. Bake at 275 for one hour or until crust is dry all the way through. Turn oven off. Allow crust to cool in the oven for several hours.
4 egg yolks
½ cup sugar
1 lemon, juice and zest
In a saucepan beat yolks until thick. Add sugar and lemon. Stirring constantly, thicken over medium heat. Add 1 cup cream, whipped, no sugar added.
Spread ½ the whipped cream on top of cooled meringue. Carefully spread lemon filling as the next layer. Spread remaining whipped cream on top of filling. Refrigerate until served.
