    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray (without flour).
  • 2
    In food processor, place cereal. Cover; process until crushed. Add remaining crust ingredients. Cover; process until crumbly. Press mixture into pie plate, starting in center and pressing up side. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on cooling rack.
  • 3

  • 4
    In medium bowl, beat egg whites with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Spoon meringue onto hot filling, spreading to edges to seal. Bake 15 minutes or until meringue is golden brown. Cool on cooling rack 30 minutes. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Use a glass or metal bowl when beating eggs for a meringue. Plastic bowls have just enough oil to ruin meringue.
  • tip 2
    If you are avoiding corn products, substitute 6 tablespoons potato starch flour for the cornstarch in the filling.
