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. Pros: Easy Cons: none
I used a pre-made crust and followed instructions for baking it in my own pie plate. Worked out fine. The lemon filling is delicious....just be careful when everything is so hot and the eggs don't 'scramble'. 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.
