I made this pie and it was just perfection. I could kiss my husband for planting a Meyer lemon tree just outside my kitchen door. It only took one of those huge babies to make this delicious gem. It was so good that I just printed out the recipe to mail to a friend who is anxious to make it a part of her go-to recipes.

This was a very good lemon pie but I found it just a bit runny BUT that could of been my fault it was just one of those baking days ( my crust cracked and my egg whites would not whip really high UGH LOL) I used two extra white for the meringue since I had them from another recipe. But the pie is gone so that speaks volumes LOL Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag
