3 Eggs--separated
1 1/4 cups evaporated skim milk

1 Tb margarine

mix milk, sweetener, salt and water --less 1 cup into a good sized pan, mix this cup with c starch and gradually stir into the liquid in the sauce pan or large skillet, heat to a simmer, add beaten yolks--heat to a boil and boil one minute or so while stirring-add butter and vanilla

Beat egg whites until stiff add 1/4 tsp salt stir 2 turns lightly-- Bake in 350 degree oven 40 minutes--until golden--let sit in oven 20 more minutes.

Pour pie filling into two 9 inch round or square pans
Tear meringue 'shells' into small pieces or 'cubes' and scatter over top.
Add toppings of cool whip or sugar free Hersheys chocolate syrup if desired.

NOTE:Add 2 Tb of ground flax if you like--it will be more earthy in coloration--left without the flax it's angelic looking--
