  1/2 cup lemon juice
  10 3/4 teaspoons Equal® Measure or 36 packets Equal®
  1/3 cup plus 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  2 eggs
  2 egg whites
  1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel (optional)
  2 Tablespoons margarine
  1 to 2 drops yellow food color (optional)
  Baked 9-inch pie shell
  3 egg whites
  1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

 Beat 3 egg whites in medium bowl until foamy; add cream of tartar and beat to soft peaks. Gradually beat in
3 1/2 teaspoons Equal® Measure, beating to stiff peaks. Spread meingue over hot lemon filling, carefully sealing
