A stronger flavour than Lemon Meringue Pie. My kids love it!

Gooseberry Meringue Pie Ingredients
  • 1 single pie crust -- cooked
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cup gooseberry juice
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 tablespoon margarine


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan. Stir in the juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and cook three minutes, stirring. Remove from heat. Add a small amount of the hot mixture to the egg yolks and stir in. Add a little more, until the egg yolks are warm. Pour into saucepan and return to heat. Bring to a boil once more. Remove from heat and stir in margarine. Pour into pie shell and cool.

Once filling is cool, make meringue: Preheat oven to 350' F. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Gradually add sugar, beating between additions. Carefully spread over the pie, being sure to touch meringue to edge of crust. Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until light brown. Serve pie chilled.
