Fabulous!!! I wanted to use my last 4 eggs, so that was the only difference (4 eggs instead of 3). It made heaps of meringue - my children's favourite part. Creamy and not too over powering of lemon, so it is suitable for younger children. I think the serves may be wrong though, as mine made 10 generous servings, so it lasted 2 nights. Thanks for posting!
