Posted in response to a request. This recipe is from "Come into the Kitchen" by Jackie Olden, page 321. Here is a quote from the recipe: "This meringue will not bead, or create wateriness between the meringue and the pie filling. In addition, the meringue will stand up for the second day, if the instructions are followed carefully."
Amazing pie, from the cover of Bon Apetite Magazine, April 2007. From their R.S.V.P. column. This recipe comes from Jamie's Restaurant in Pensacola, FL. I served it at Memorial Day family get-together, and everyone said it was amazing. I agree. A bit time consuming to put together, but SO worth it! Time to make is an estimate (I didn't really keep track.) Freezing times are included in the "passive cooking time".
This is the best-ever Lemon Meringue Pie you could ask for. It is made with fresh lemons and fresh grated lemon peel. This is to die for---well not actually, but it has great lemon flavor and it is not that hard to make. Before putting the lemon filling in the pie shell, you will notice that a couple of tablespoons of the meringue go into the filling. It is wonderful. Once you make this you will not want to have any other.
Taken from my Thanksgiving/holiday favorites folder. If you prefer a more intense filling flavor, then double up on all four spices. Make certain not to defrost the pie crust, fill frozen and then bake, this recipe calls for a store-bought pie crust, that's what makes this recipe very easy! Use 4 eggs for a fluffier and lighter filling, if you prefer a denser filling then use only 3. If you are making this pie for a large dinner party, then my advise is to make two pies. This pie will produce excellent results in very little prep time, because of the frozen crust this pie takes only minutes to put together!
