- Beat until creamy.add salt and 6 tbls sugar and beat again till fluffy -- Pile on your pie and bake in a 350* oven till meringue is gold tinged, usually 20-30 minutes.
I made this to top my lemon pie and it's wonderful. I took it to our family gathering and my brother in law said it was the best lemon meringue pie he had ever eaten. My hubby thinks it's the best, too. I did add about 1 1/2 teaspoons of mexican vanilla and it added a lot to the taste. But the texture of the meringue is absolutely perfect. Thanks for sharing with us!! The compliments I get belong to you.
My maintenace man said his wife made this meringue and I was curious if it was on here, and of course it was!! I'm trying this tonight on a Butterscotch pie!!Update....I forgot to rate this in October. This is a great meringue recipe. Thanks for posting!!
