Take a deep dish, grate into it the outside of the rind of two lemons;
add to that a cup and a half of white sugar, two heaping
tablespoonfuls of unsifted flour, or one of cornstarch; stir it well
together, then add the yolks of three well-beaten eggs, beat this
thoroughly, then add the juice of the lemons, two cups of water and a
piece of butter the size of a walnut. Set this on the fire in another
dish containing boiling water and cook it until it thickens, and will
dip up on the spoon like cold honey. Remove from the fire, and when
cooled, pour it into a deep pie-tin, lined with pastry; bake, and when
done, have ready the whites, beaten stiff, with three small
tablespoonfuls of sugar. Spread this over the top and return to the
oven, to set and brown slightly. This makes a deep, large sized pie,
and very superior.
