Excellent pie...just enough tartness and the meringue was perfect. I used skim milk and it came out perfect. Thanks for sharing!!

This is a delicious pie. I made a graham cracker crust instead of a regular pie crust, and was out of milk, so I upped the water to 1 1/4 cups and used 1/4 cup of heavy cream. This was a birthday pie for my 78 year old mother, and she was wow'd by the perfect lemon taste. It was also beautiful. Thanks for a great recipe.

I've made this several times and the compliments always flow. I like to drizzle a simple raspberry sauce over each serving. I thought I'd try a white chocolate drizzle around the plate next time.

You are right, this is a true classic! The addition of the lemon zest is what sets this apart from any other lemon pie I've ever made. It was a little more tart than my family prefers, but I think next time I might cut back on the juice...I won't be leaving out the zest! As a matter of fact, this will be my base recipe from now on for any fruit and meringue dessert I make...because the filling and topping were so simple, and so perfect! Thanks once again Evelyn! Made for ZWT3.

Really good meringue. I used it for banana pie too and it was great.

My first attempt at Lemon Meringue Pie, which used to be my favourite dessert as a child, and it was a total SUCCESS! I made my own pie shell using the recipe out of my Edmond's cookbook & blind baked using dry rice. I was worried I hadn't beaten the egg whites enough but the meringue topping was perfect. The lemon filling tasted just right for me! Yay! The whole family loved it! I plan to make this again & often. Thanks Evelyn :)

My fiance brought home some fresh lemons and hinted that he wanted a lemon meringue pie. This was my first time making any kind of meringue pie. I was nervous, but it turned out great!!! Yahoo!! I did have a problem getting the lemon zest. I've never grated lemon zest before. My grater just didn't work, so I scraped it with a knife. That wasn't fun and I got some big chunks of zest in the pie...oops. I also learned that in the future I should use the whisk attachment on the mixer rather than whisk by hand! My hand was tired! I added a little vanilla to the meringue and had no pie weights, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. I personally don't like fruit pies so I haven't tried it, but my fiance says it's wonderful and that it has the perfect amount of tartness. Awesome!

Absolutely delightful! Just the right balance between sweet and tart. Directions are spot on--filling thickened beautifully, no lumps. I used my usual tart shell(butter pastry), your filling, meringue --it was perfect. Thanks from the birthday boy and all the guests.
