    Marie's Note:

    The crust is pressed into a square baking pan and baked, then filled with lemon filling and topped with a coconut meringue. Easier than pie and so delicious.

      I'm not sure it's any easier than pie, but it's certainly just as tasty. Very tart, just like it should be. A little gooey, too, but not so much that the squares don't stay intact. I'd recommend folding the sugar into the beaten egg whites along with the coconut rather than adding while beating. It's happened to me more than once that the egg whites just don't stiffen with the sugar already added, no matter how gradually.
