What is really, really fun
is baking pies for my party tonight.
I do love me some Lemon Meringue Pie.
So I dug out the Greenwood Mennonite Community Cookbook
And looked up a recipe
(that I had put in there a l-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-n-g time ago . . .)
Mrs. Handy’s Lemon Meringue Pie.
Got busy, and they came together wonderfully!
Mrs. Handy sure knew how to make Lemon pies.
She was the Home Ec teacher at Woodbridge High School.
I actually got the recipe from my sister, Sarah Yoder Slaubaugh
(who got it from Mrs. Handy.).
First you gotta’ get those crusts just right!
Then you gotta’ cook that filling just right!
(And fill them thar’ pie crusts!)
Then you gotta’ beat those egg whites just right!
And add the cream of tartar and sugar.
And beat it some more until it is just right!
Then you put the meringue on the top and spread it around.
If you are Beebs, you do it like this. ↑
(Buckeyegirlie did two of them another way)
And then you bake them again until the tops are golden brown.
And there are the pies, all done.
Waiting for the party tonight.
And I’ve got a bunch of straightening to do.
So I am outta’ here!
Take heed to this sign.
