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

Gradually stir 1/2 cup sugar mixture into beaten egg yolks with whisk. Gradually stir egg mixture into remaining hot mixture. Continue cooking stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes or until mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Stir in lemonade concentrate, 1 tablespoon butter and salt. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.
