I have made so many pies, but this is my favorite. It's quick too! Addition of butter to the recipe is optional.

Very good pie. Next time I will use a pre-cooked pie crust. I did discover that it's worth the extra trouble to get out the mixer for merangue. Takes too long by hand.

A fun twist on classic lemon meringue. The recipe was a bit unclear...I ended up not using a pie crust! It was still good though, and I used a berry/lemon drink instead of just lemon, so it was pink and my daughter loved it!
