    keen5's Note:

    This is my son's all time favorite pie. He gets upset if I only make one, because he wants a whole pie to himself. Prep and cook time does not include making the pie shell and is approximate. This recipe came from a 1973 Betty Crocker cookbook.

      A simple recipe that works great! The filling was lovely, sweet and tart as a lemon pie should be. I did not add the food colouring, my eggs had a deep yellow yolk! I liked the addition of vanilla in the meringue, a pleasant treat!
