Thanks for posting this quick and easy recipe. I like the fact that it can all be made in a double boiler in just a few minutes, and I think the recipe could be used for custard cups as well as a deep dish pie. I think it needs more cornstarch and flavoring.

This lemon pie filling is really gentle and tasty. I skipped the eggs and I added 2 ts of cornstarch to the filling to thicken it, 2 more Tbs sugar to the meringue to sweeten a bit (cause it was flavorless), and made my own low fat crust. I posted the full recipe of the pie I prepared (see picture). Thank you for this lemony filling. Smadar's Sane Way
