Ingredients

Topping

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar

Meringue

3 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg whites, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup sugar

Filling

1 1/2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup lemonade concentrate, undiluted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream

Directions

Heat broiler. Combine flour and 1/3 cup sugar in small bowl; cut in 1/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Place in 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat, watching closely and stirring every minute or until golden brown and crunchy (3 to 4 minutes). Cool completely. Set aside.

Heat oven to 275°F. Generously spray 9-inch pie pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.

Beat egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar in small bowl at low speed until foamy. Increase speed to high; gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form and mixture is glossy. Spoon into prepared pan; spread meringue over bottom and up sides.

Bake for 1 hour without opening oven door. Turn off oven; let meringue shell stand in oven for 1 additional hour. Remove from oven; cool to room temperature.

Combine water, 1 cup sugar and cornstarch in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil (5 to 7 minutes). Continue cooking 1 minute. Gradually stir 1/2 cup sugar mixture into beaten egg yolks with wire whisk. Gradually stir egg mixture into remaining hot mixture. Continue cooking stirring constantly, until mixture thickens (2 to 3 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in lemonade concentrate, 1 tablespoon butter and salt. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.

Stir sour cream into cooled filling mixture. Spoon cooled filling mixture into meringue shell; sprinkle with topping. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.
