    echo echo's Note:

    I'm intrigued by this recipe, which I have not tried yet. I've never heard of grapefruit meringue pie before but I love grapefruit, so I hope it will be good. I'm guessing as to number of grapefruit segments it will take to trim the pie; it may take more than 1 grapefruit.

      The flavor was nice, but I had a fail because I tried to put the meringue on top of the hot pie filling. I don't think the first step in this recipe needs to be "preheat the oven" because it is going to take at least an hour or two for the pie to set up enough to accept spreading the meringue. The other note I would have been thankful for would have been in reference to whether the filling is actually supposed to come to a boil or not. Mine never did, even double boiling on high. I think it is a good recipe, but there are just some critical gaps in the instructions. With a pie crust already made, the process took over an hour to complete.

      Prep time was a lot more than 0 when you make, bake , and cool the crust. I didn't know if one was enough to go all around so I sectioned two which gave me enough to go around twice. I used Splenda instead of sugar and it came out very nice. Thanks for posting. I took photos which I will try to post.

      I made this for my french class, for mari gras. The pie was perfect!! I did double it so i would have a tester too. For me the double used one and half grapefruits. i did strain the juice, for 10th graders really wouldn't care for pulp. i will certainly use it again!
