Red Wine ChiliRoy Rogers Lemon Meringue Pie

Dusty Rogers (Roy Rogers Jr.) enjoyed the Margarita pie recipe so much last month that he made it for his entire museum staff! One word of advice from him, "When making the recipe, you may want to sample the ingredients as you go. Tasting the tequila with every step makes it more fun!"

It inspired him to share the recipe that brought his parents together. The story goes that Roy was performing in Ohio when an attractive fan offered to feed him and his singing group her mother's Lemon Meringue Pie. Pie lead to dinner, dinner to courting, courting to history being made!!!!!  

Please enjoy The Pie That Won Roy's Heart!

1 cup sugar
4 Tb flour
1 cup water
3 eggs, separated
Few grains salt
1 lemon, grated rind and juice
1 Tb margarine
1 baked pie shell

Combine sugar and flour. Add a little of the water: mix smooth. Add beaten egg yolks. Add remaining water. Cook over hot water stirring constantly until thick. Cover; cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat; add salt, grated lemon rind and juice, and margarine. Mix well. Cool slightly. Pour into baked (9-inch) pastry shell. Make a meringue of beaten egg whites and six tablespoons of sugar. Swirl on pie. Bake in moderately slow oven at 325° F for 20 minutes. Cool. Serve and win the hearts of your loved ones!  

Thanks, Dusty!
