Recipe by Baby Kato

Oh just a wonderful pie, similar to lemon meringue but with a twist of its own. Well worth the extra effort.

Top Review by Chef Jean

The filling of the pie is amazing! The meringue crust was not our favorite, but was a nice alternantive. I thought the crust was just too sweet, so maybe I can make it with less sugar. The lemon raspberry filling is completely worth the extra effort! Also, make sure to use a 10 inch pie plate or you won't need to use the entire recipe :) Made for PAC spring '11.
