      Sift together 1 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar.

    5. 5

      Im diabetic so I substituted 3/4 splenda granular for the 1 cup of sugar in the meringue. I used 1/2 cup of splenda for the 1/2 cup sugar in the filling. Its been 24 hours and I just had my first taste after lunch. it turned out great and will make again and again when the sweet urge overtakes me. Thanks Rita, Ive also bookmarked the Diabetic blog.

      Heavenly, just as the title suggests. The crust makes this pie very unique and was delicious. I made mine in the morning and ate it for dessert the same evening. We all enjoyed this creamy, upside down lemon meringue pie very much. Thanks!
