    Bay Laurel's Note:

    This Lemon Meringue Pie is from Joy of Cooking. I enjoyed it so much I had to share the recipe with everyone. I used Deluxe Butter Pie Pastry Dough for the crust and it melted in my mouth. The Meringue topping is included and you won't have to worry about this one weeping. Try this and you probably won't be able to stop eating it but who cares since Lemon Meringue Pie is low fat right? Enjoy. Time does not include cooling off period :)
