“I got this recipe from my Mom. So many meringue recipes are a bit skimpy, this recipe gives you the amount of meringue that you really want on top of your pie.” – Calla Ferre


Course: Pies


  • 6 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar


  • Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. On high speed, beat in sugar 1 Tablespoon at a time until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling, spreading to edge of crust to seal. Swirl into peaks.
  • Bake on lower rack at 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes (thermometer inserted in meringue will register 140 degrees.) Bake 3 minutes longer. Cool on rack up to 2 hours.
