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!
This was spectacular..It was all we could do to wait the 24 hour chill time! I loved the meringue shell..such a nice change from regular pie crust..we'll be making this many, many times!! I can easily understand why your Dad loved it so much !! Teresa
I was 17 the first time I tasted this pie and that was a long, long time ago (do I really have to mention the number of years!!!?) Anyway, I thought I had died and gone to heaven because I had only had lemon meringue pies before that. If you want to impress guests this is it. Suggest you do not try to make the meringue in humid weather.
we loved this .dee
It was great to see this recipe being shared among the Zaarites. I've had this one for years and years. It's an excellent dessert, and impresses people both with it's presentation and taste. The meringue crust can be piped in/on the pie plate if you want to take the time to make it even prettier. It's very rich, so if it's being served after a heavy meal, you can easily cut it into 8 or even 10 servings. Thanks for sharing Rita L.
I'm 74 years old and used to make it for years back in good old Milwaukee. Then our son dveloped diabetes at 4 years old and I didn't make it again. I never did use quite that much sugar...but if you've never tried it..do. You most probably won't be disappointed. Muttipie
Excellent, I made this for a dinner party and everyone thought it was delicious, in fact they were scraping the pie dish to devour every morsel. I made one change, I added some lime juice to give it an extra kick. This is a winner.
I've been wanting to make this for a very long time. It certainly wasn't the prettiest dessert I have ever served. The filling was very tasty. Not too sure about the meringue shell. I doubt I will make this again.
