Lemon Meringue Pie

I made a lemon meringue pie for Molly's Birthday! its a little more brown than i would have liked, but hopefully it tastes nice. She isn't a big fan of crust so i tried to make it thin.

I'm not sure what the name of the book was that i got this recipe from, but its at my mom's house, and the cover is red and white plaid...

Lemon Meringue Pie:

1 1/5 cups sugar
3 T cornstarch
3 T flour
Dash salt
1 1/2 cups hot water
-In a saucepan, gradually stir in water and bring to a boil. Cook while stirring for 2 more minutes, and remove from heat)

3 slightly beaten egg yolks
2 T butter
1/2 t grated lemon peel
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 9 inch baked pastry shell, cooled
- Stir part of the hot mixture into the egg yolks, then combine with the rest. Bring it to boiling and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly. Add butter and lemon peel. Slowly add lemon juice, mixing well. Pour into pastry shell.

3 egg whites
1/2 t vanilla
