  • Wonderful! It just needs 1/4 t cream of tartar added to the egg whites to stabilize the meringue. - 5/14/10

  • I really liked the way this pie tasted, but I must have done something wrong with the meringue. Even though it was watery, it baked just fine over the top. For some reason, my refrigerated left-over pie turned into a lemon puddle by the next day. No matter though, it still tasted great in a bowl. - 1/25/10
