What a great pie Heydarl. We loved the taste and texture of this incredible dessert. It was well worth the extra love and effort. The crust was tasty and crisp, the filling very citrusy while the meringue was light, fluffy and sweet. Thanks so much for posting. I will be making this treasure again soon.
I didnt make the pastry, but as I use this pastry all the time I knew it would be good :) I made the filling and it was great! very tingly, very lemony. I used frozen (fresh) lemon juice, and fresh eggs from my chooks. I think that next time I will cut the cornflour down a bit, cause the eggs were big and orange-yolked, and the filling ended up a little thick. The meringue was spot on, and I have a "whisk" attachment, only took a few minutes to make. I made this in an 8" square pan, and had some filling left over. I made about 30 tiny meringues for the Grandies, and then mixed the lemon filling with the meringue, put it in a container, and tasted it this morning. it's so darn WOW that I might fiddle with it and come up with another recipe :) thanks hey darl!
Wow, this one's a winner. Luscious lemony tongue tingling filling, with a beautiful light as air topping. The pastry wasn't half bad either. Thanks for such a fantastic recipe, this is the first ever lemon meringue pie I have ever made - and this recipe will be the one I keep making. Made for ZWT3.
