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.
