    Why limit a great dessert like lemon meringue pie to just one kind of citrus fruit? Thanks to orange and lemon, this lovely pie packs a bold sweet-tart flavor!


    • 4 Large Eggs, Separated
    • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
    • 1/2 Tsp. Cream of Tartar (Spice)
    • 1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
    • 2 Tbsp. Orange Juice
    • 1/2 Tsp. Orange Zest
    • 2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
    • 1 Tsp. Lemon Zest
    • 2 Cups Fresh Whipped Cream or Frozen Whipped Topping, Thawed


    Heat oven to 275°F. Spray 9-Inch pie pan with non-stick cooking spray.
    Prepare Meringue Crust:
    In large bowl, combine egg whites, salt and cream of tartar. Beat at medium-low speed until egg whites are frothy. Increase speed to medium. Add 1 cup of the sugar; continue beating until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly into pan.
    Bake 1 hour. Cool on wire rack.
    To Prepare Filling:
    Beat egg yolks at medium speed in another large bowl until thick and lemon-colored. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup sugar, orange juice, orange zest, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Pour mixture into small saucepan. Cook on low heat until thickened; cool.
    Spread 1 cup of the whipped topping over pie shell. Spread citrus filling gently over topping; top with remaining 1 cup whipped topping. Refrigerate 4 hours before serving. Store in refrigerator.
