"This dessert is an old favourite of many! Everyone seems to LOVE it! It really IS delicious! For some UNKNOWN reason, I seem to make it more often in the cooler months of the year than in the spring or summer! I haven't included the preparation time here mainly because I usually make the pastry case well in advance."

"This was such a good and easy recipe. The crust is delicious. The lemon filling is tart and sweet, great balance. The meringue looks so beautiful. It did not cool enough until 10:00 to put in the fridge. I actually ate a lice in the middle of the night. Couldn't help it! Great pie!"
"I absolutely loved this. Made it for Thanksgiving and "accidentally" ate it the night before, so I need to make another, no fear, this is sooo easy. The only thing I had to change was baking the crust at about 325 degrees for about 15 mins (or more) and with the merangue on top as well at the same temp. Otherwise, it was perfect!!!"
"this was my first time trying lemon meringue and it turned out so good. I was never a fan before as i had never tasted homemade lemon meringue. this was a great recipe easy to follow and just really yummy. thank you!"
"This was great!"
"Step by step instructions were great. The pie turned out fabulous. The next time - which will be very soon - I would probably increase the plain flour to 1 3/4 of a cup and reduce the castor sugar to 3/4 of a cup."
"I have never made lemon meringue pie before, but it was sooo easy and it turned out great. I followed the recipe exactly, except I bought a pie shell instead of making it. OH - You werent kidding about covering the meringue all the way over the pastry, it did shrink. I already have requests to make it again."
"Very easy and delicious. Lemon Meringue is my dad's favorite pie so he was very pleased with the recipe...even more pleased he didn't have to bake it himself!"
"I'm not a keen baker or maker of desserts, but this was so simple to make as the directions were very clear. I liked the fact there wasn't too much meringue and the lemon curd was just tart enough. This was the only dessert to be completely devoured on our Christmas dinner table."
