Pinch of salt
Pinch of Cream of Tartar

Pour the filling into the warm crust and bake until the filling is just firm, 10-15 minutes. Remove and cool on a rack for about 10 minues.
Make the Merinuge: Beat the egg whites with salt and cream of tartar, until foamy. Keep beating gradually adding the confectioner's sugar, until the mixture is shiny and hold fairly stiff peaks.
Cover the pie with the meringue, making sure the meringue comes in contact with the edges of the crust. Note that the meringue will hold its shape, so you can decorate it if you like. Bake until the meringue is lightly browned, 10-15 minutes. Cool on a rack, then refrigerate; serve cool.
