My mother got this recipe from an Israeli lady many years ago while living in Israel as a newlywed. It has been our family’s favorite for as long as I can remember.
Preheat oven to 375F.
In a bowl combine flour oil and confectioners sugar until a coarse crumb forms. Press into a round oven to tableware dish.
Bake pie shell for 10-12 minutes.
Combine 1 and 1/4 cups cold water, 1/4 cup lemon juice and the sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. After sauce boils allow to cool completely.
Combine 1/4 cup water and corn starch and add to the cooled lemon mixture.
Add egg yolks and bring to a full boil. Sauce should be thick like pudding. Shut flame.
Add oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice.
Pour the mixture onto the baked pie shell.
Beat the egg whites and confectioners sugar until a stiff snow is formed.
Spread the snow on top of the pie, form peaks.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until the top is golden.
