This was a good change from my normal lemon meringue pie , I used a graham cracker crust (I'm in the US and can't get the arrowroot biscuits). The only change I really made was I doubled up on the meringue because I love meringue. ;) Very smooth creamy filling , not too sweet, not too tart , and FAST to put together!!! Thanks for posting!!

I was very happy with this. I was looking for something a little different in a lemon meringue, and bookmarked this to try today.<br/><br/>I used a graham cracker crust because that's what I had. I wasn't sure how the condensed milk would work with the lemon juice, and wasn't sure it would set up well enough in only 15 minutes' baking time, but it did great!<br/><br/>SO much less "fiddly" than the stovetop cornstarch/sugar/water method. This will be my go-to lemon meringue from now on.

My husband wants this to become a Thanksgiving tradition he liked it so much! I did use another meringue recipe that had 3 eggs and some cream of tartar, just for a little more on top.
