Good morning, everybody… There’s spaghetti and bacon sauce at “Heart,” today.It’s “National Dessert Day,” today. (I did think this was a few days ago, I must have mis-read something.) So here is my all time farvourite pie from Mom. (It’s Mom’s directions, so read it all before putting it together. Love counts more than organization. :-) )
Lemon Meringue Pie (From Mom) 1 cup sugar5 to 6 tablespoons cornstarch1/8 teaspoon salt2 cups hot waterMix dry ingredients, gradually stir in hot water till smooth. Cook in double boiler stirring till thickened, then cover and cool 10 minutes longer.Add 3 beaten egg yolks.First blend in about 1/2 cup of the hot mixture, then add to the mixture gradually, blending in well.Remove from heat.Then add: 3 tablespoons butter1/3 cup lemon juice2 teaspoons grated lemon rind (grate lemon before cutting) Blend in carefully and quickly.Cool covered with lid, so that skin does not form on top.Put in baked pie shell.Cover with meringue.Bake at 300 deg. For 15 to 20 minutes, watching so it does not burn. For baked pie shell To prevent pie shell bubbling up, prick pie shell with fork before baking.Meringue Beat three egg whites, gradually add 1/2 teaspoon cream tartar, some sugar, a dash of salt, and a few drops lemon flavouring., if you have it.When the meringue forms soft peaks and holds its shape, spread on top of pie.Don’t over beat until too dry.Swirl here and there to make peaks, when spreading on pie.
The Toronto group “Edward Bear” also took their name from the book. The opening line of “Winnie the Pooh” is “Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin.” (I guess A. A. Milne was, himself, making a play on “Teddy’s bear,” either ignoring or forgetting the fact that Teddy was a diminutive of Theodore and not Edward, in that case. )Anyway, here is Edward Bear.
