Everyone loves this pie! If you are looking for an easy recipe for a lemon meringue pie..this is it! I used a NILLA pie crust. I only used 1 box of lemon gelatin because it is all I had. It still came out great, but next time I will use 2 boxes, as recipe calls for. I felt it was easy to make and very delicious! Will be making it again soon!

It was good and simple to make, but I knocked it one star because it is quite time-consuming. Also, the crust ends up having an inordinate amount of fat - it practically swims in fat when you take it out of the oven.

This doesn't much resemble Lemon Meringue Pie. However, it is very good - like a good lemon icebox pie, with cool whip topping!
