I would give this pie many more stars if I could! Wonderful pie, thank you so much for posting this recipe. A creamy lovely lemon filling that makes a beautiful pie. The only problem I had was I turned the heat up a bit to high and my filling started to get a little clumpy. When pouring the filling in the pie shell I used a wire strainer and that worked great. If you enjoy lemon meringue pie do give this pie a try!
