I have such a hard time with meringue, but this one just seems to work for me. I have tried using cream of tarter and slowing adding sugar but my meringue always came out tough. This is so simple and so easy. I guess i just tried to make it hard for myself.BCD

This recipe is really easy and good, even though I forgot the vanilla. I will put it in my favourite recipes.

I used this after my merigue failed because I had no tartar. I tried using vinegar as a substitute but it failed. This was perfect. My dad loved my mom's and my sister Carmel's Lemon Merigue pies. This fourth and every holiday I fix one of my parents favorite desserts. Cheers to you dad. Love ya, Southerncookingbee Mobile, Al
