Savory Lemon Meringue Pie
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. + chilling
I just made this pie and it came out perfect. I'm not sure why the previous reviewer's filling didn't thicken....maybe old cornstarch? Anyways, it was my first lemon meringue pie and will definitely be my go to recipe :-)
I'm not sure why the previous rater had problems with this one. I have made this a couple of times, most recently for this Thanksgiving, I know it's odd but my son really wanted one. They have all turned out great. The filling is nice and firm but not too "bouncy" like you can get with some. I'm wondering if she didn't simmer it long enough on the stove. With that much flour and cornstarch it should be nice and thick. The crust always turns out tender and golden. It's a great recipe and easy to do. I highly recommend this one.
This is, by far, the absolute WORST Lemon Meringue Pie recipe I have ever tried. The filling was watery and NEVER, EVER thickened up, no matter how long I cooked it. OK, I thought, maybe it will thicken when it cools. NOPE. I ended up with Lemon Meringue Soup!! And, one other very impt thing: if you 'blind bake,' which you are supposed to do with a pie containing a liquid filling, re-baking this crust another 12-15 minutes, serious OVER-bakes this crust to the point of being hard! Forget this recipe and find a better one. I am so angry at the loss of time and resources attempting this loser!!
this is a dish, even the presidents dined at there tables with. it is beautifulll, delicious and so yummie. this recipe is made so well. the picture of it says "come and get it"
