Light Lemon Meringue Pie

Your rating: None Average: 4 (24 votes)

Smooth and soothing; a great classic pie right down to the crust, redefined with a generous amount of lemon and fewer egg yolks in the filling.

Incredibly lemony

This was the first lemon meringue pie I've ever made. I did use pre-made unrolled crust...
The filling was so easy to make. I was VERY impressed with how much lemon flavour there was.
I had a large round pie pan, so the meringue seemed to spread out pretty thin. In my situation, I may increase the meringue recipe slightly.
Each cut looked perfect. The filling held its shape beautifully and the meringue was light and fluffy.
It looked impressive and was a big hit at a dinner party.

The meringue was tasty, but I wasn't able to get the peaks as high. However, the taste of this pie is
every bit as good as a bakery-made pie w/ the benefit a fewer calories and fat.
