For Filling:
Mix sugar and cornstarch; add water. Combine egg yolks with lemon juice; beat. Add to sugar mixture. Cook in double boiler for 25 minutes, until thick. Add lemon extract, vinegar, and butter. Pour into pie shell.

For Meringue:
Mix cornstarch with cold water. Add hot water, and boil until thick. Cool. Beat egg whites until foamy. Stir in sugar, vanilla, and salt. Add cornstarch mixture, and beat on high speed until stiff peaks form. Spread over Filling, and bake at 350° for 10 minutes.

For pretty slices, coat knife with butter before cutting a meringue pie. But even when a grandchild “slices” this pie . . . well, you get the picture.
