Prepare the Lemon Meringue Pie
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
Knead together crust ingredients, adding the water one tablespoon at a time, as needed. Roll out and arrange in a pie pan. Place pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine sugar, cornstarch, and cold water in a saucepan over a low flame. Cook until thickened. Remove from fire and add in oil and lemon juice. Mix well.
In a small bowl, beat the yolks with a fork. Pour some of the sugar/lemon mixture into the yolks and mix, then pour the yolks into the pot and mix until combined. Pour into the par-baked pie shell.
Beat together the egg whites, sugar, and cornstarch for the meringue. Spread the meringue on top of the pie and bake for 25 minutes.
