This is an awesome recipe! Not difficult at all. I made the pie filling and used "weepless meringue" recipe # 20159. It was delicious! Thanks for posting! I like this recipe so much better than the pies using sweetened condensed milk, this is like my Mom used to make!

This is the same recipe I use when I make lemon meringue pie. I always get raves and requests for the recipe! You are right, nothing beat this pie made from scratch.
