Cantaloupe Meringue Pie

It is a real treat for us to have cantaloupes this early in the season! We figured we have to make the best of it by making this unique and great-looking pie!


1 1/2 cups finely ground shortbread cookies (like Keebler Sandies)
3 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

1 large very ripe cantaloupe
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar (increase up to 1/2 cup if your cantaloupe isn’t very sweet)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. water
3 egg yolks
2 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. vanilla

3 egg whites
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
6 tbsp. sugar
