I was hesitant to make this since everyone seemed to "tweak" the recipe. I made it EXACTLY like it said on the recipe, and the meringue would not stiffen, and the pie was VERY tart! I served it ...

my grandmother has made this pie for years and all of the children and grandchildren request it for special occasions.
