I dont like tears on my pies.

Top Review by Teresa M

Ann, this is Delicious! It has a bit more substance than regular meringue, and “I don’t like tears in my pies” either. I know it drives my mom crazy when she bakes them and gets tears, so I’ll have to share this one with her. I paired this up with Lennie’s Old-Fashioned Banana Cream Pie. Our DD’s eyes rather rolled back in her head with enjoyment as she tasted it, followed by mmmm, and I know she told me at least twice how good it was. DH has some in his lunch for tomorrow, a really nice Monday treat. We Will be making this one again! Thank-you. I’ll have to try this meringue on a chocolate-from-scratch meringue pie next…lol
