    No, of course not - it's mixed well with water and other ingredients and when cooked, it thickens the sauce

    Awesome! This reminds me of my Grandmother's homemade pie. I wouldn't change a thing. - 10/14/11

    Wonderful! It just needs 1/4 t cream of tartar added to the egg whites to stabilize the meringue. - 5/14/10
