  1. + Directions : To quote the author, " "It doesn't fall down or get weepy like a meringue usually does if you don't eat it all at one sitting," Eva told me. "With this recipe you can make it today and it will stay perfect till tomorrow. " " (Eva is one of the author's Old Order Mennonite friends) Moisten the cornstarch with the cold water. Stir in the boiling water. Cook and stir until thickened and clear - done in seconds. Cool completely. Beat the egg whites until firm, gradually add the sugar, then beat in the cornstarch mixture and vanilla. Presto! Makes enough for one large pie or 2 smaller ones. Spread it to the edge of the filled pie and put it in the oven at 425F for 5 to 6 minutes to gild the top.
