The recipe makes a terrific, easy lemon meringue, which was a big hit. The directions on the meringue should include the addition of vanilla in the final beating process (inadvertently omitted in the directions), and I recommend increasing the amount of meringue on the pie, since the amount in the recipe does not make a very high meringue top. I used low-fat sweetened condensed milk, and it turned out fine, with no impact on the consistency of the pie. It has great flavor and consistency.


Easy recipe that becomes great with some changes. -additional egg for the meringue -1/2cup of sugar to the meringue -fresh lemon juice, a full 3/4 cup. -1/4 cup of sugar to the lemon juice. A regular pie crust works great with this recipe, and be sure to cook the pie until set, and then add the meringue! It took abou 15 minutes to brown the merginue, be sure to watch it though!


This is the recipe my Great-grandmother used and the only one my family likes. It is sweet, smooth and creamy with a delicious lemon flavor. The recipe is so easy and turns out great every time.
