    Use egg whites that are at room temperature until they form peaks.  Add a little sugar.  Spread over the pie.  Bake at about 350 for 10 minutes or until the meringue is browned.  I wrote a Hub on how to make Lemon Meringue Pie in the microwave.  Complete instructions are on my Hub.

    Add a little Meringue powder, found with cake supplies.

    The key is beating the egg whites until well peaked then spread thickly. Mary's instructions are good for adding sugar and baking. Egg whites do best when beaten in a glass bowl rather than stainless steel.
