Does the universe work in strange ways?.....I think so!

after talking pies with hubby yesterday (saw the movie 'Waitress' and have been pining to own a pie shop for years)....and then answered this post....and guess what this morning?

A woman just phoned and asked if I would be interested in baking some pies for her annual 'Pie Bake-Off' July 7.

Be careful what you think! (or wish for...?)

I'm trying to figure out why you wouldn't want your lemon curd recipe to curdle.
I found this recipe. I remember trying one similar to this years ago.

I'm adding an amended recipe to this. I have found that my larger pie pans require a larger amount of filling.

1.5 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1.5 cup BOILING water
1.5 tbsp butter
3 eggs (separated)
2 lemons juice and zest (add more zest 3 lemons is best)

If I use 9 inch pyrex pie pans, should I use the original or the new recipe? PERSONALLY and on a guess, I 'd choose the latter, More is Better.

What's the depth on them? I have deep ones and shallow ones that both measure 9 inches across. Do they have the little handles on the edges? I use the new recipe for that one.

If you start pouring and there's too much filling just pour it off into a bowl and have some lemon pudding!

Ha-ha. I just have the shallow ones. Now I know to use the New Recipe FOR SURE anyway.
