Add to lemon juice mixture, stirring consistently until simmering.
Beat egg yolks together in a small bowl then add to simmering lemon mixture, stir constantly for 3-4 minutes, or until mixture has thickened.
Pour into a pie dish.
To make the meringue, beat the egg whites and maple syrup in a medium size mixing bowl until stiff peaks form.
