    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    No more scorched saucepan bottoms! this is a no-fail recipe that is made in the microwave. For extreme lemon flavor add in a couple more tablespoons fresh lemon juice and be prepared to "pucker up" lol!

      GOOD technique in the microwave. Instructions -#3 have vanilla listed instead of lemon juice or missing vanilla in initial ingredients--confusing. No mention made of using egg whites for the meringue or as a chiffon mixture into the filling. Water or evaporated milk can be substituted for milk intolerant persons.
