Ok, I am posting the recipe for the fabulous Lemon Sponge Pie (I give all the credit to "Kitty" who posted it on Allrecipes.com) It is rather easy to make and tastes awesome. On the otherhand my Orange sponge pie kinda bombed. I put too much OJ and didnt cook it long enough so it is soupy. EW. I never said I was a good pie maker. So try the Lemon sponge and skip the orange sponge, trust me.
Lemon Sponge Pie
1 unbaked pie crust
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/4 cups white sugar
4 egg yolks, beaten
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 pinch salt
1 1/4 cups milk
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 egg whites
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar.
Beat the egg yolks, flour, salt, milk, grated zest, and lemon juice into the creamed mixture.
In a clean bowl and with clean beaters, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold the egg whites into the filling.
Pour into unbaked pie crust.
Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce temperate to 300 degrees and bake for an additional 45 minutes or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
