FINALLY ~ after years of trying to make the perfect lemon meringue pie, I did it!! I've never had trouble making fruit pies, custard pies or cobblers, but "cream" pies never seem to meet my expectations. Last week at our "cousin reunion" I was given a large bag of lemons. After drinking gallons of lemon water, I decided I would try again.
This time using a recipe from my "Better Homes and Gardens" All-Time Favorite Pies book.
Not sure what I did different this time ~ but the pie and the meringue came out perfect. The test to the perfect lemon pie is if my dearest's fork slides effortlessly through the meringue and filling. IT DID!! Yeah!
The filling set up and the crust was flaky ~ for someone who bakes all the time and camps in the kitchen, this was a Milestone day for me!!! Finally a lemon meringue pie that met my expectations, and my dearest was ever so pleased. Win~Win.
