Now, the meringue was a fabulous recipe. The huge problem is the directions. I believe this pie probably is good... but the direction incredibly non-specific. I attempted to follow this recipe exactly, but I found myself constantly questioning when to do certain things or how one would go about it. The pie tasted good, but it was horribly gooey...very liquid-like. I'm sure it's a good recipe, but the directions... are crap. I would like to request an edit to these directions to make them "dummy-proof". Right now..there are a lot of words and steps missing.
