It is so funny to me that people rate a perfect recipe unfairly becaue they tried to "bake" a recipe that says UNBAKED meringue!!! It is perfect, just what I needed Saundra!! FYI the other meringue recipe by Saundra called Meringue II on this site is the best ever for baking :)


Always used the egg whites beaten and then add in sugar. Sometimes it would turn out great, sometimes not. Tried this recipe and WOW! I have put it in my book of "must have time savers!" I would get frustrated with the "old" method, but this recipe was SO easy, the flavor was the same as the "old" method and the peaks I got? WOW!! Look out Rockie Mountains!! FYI, this recipe made more than enough meringue to cover 6 of the mini-crusts made by Keebler; imagine it would easily cover (1) 8 or 9-inch pie.

The meringue was beautiful until it was baked. I would not bake this meringue because it weeped so badly that the pie crust was soaked.
