Lemon Sponge Pie

This is an old recipe - but it’s very good!

2 cups sugar
4 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon water
juice of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups Carnation or use half milk

Mix yolks with water and add sugar. Add flour and lemon. Add melted butter; mix well. Add milk. Beat egg whites; put in last.

Bake at 325 or 350 for 40 to 45 minutes. (If baked at too high temperature, pie might get too brown and center might not bake right.)

Yields: 2 8-inch pies
