lemonade-flavored drink mix powder
Very good pie. Next time I will use a pre-cooked pie crust. I did discover that it's worth the extra trouble to get out the mixer for merangue. Takes too long by hand.
A fun twist on classic lemon meringue. The recipe was a bit unclear...I ended up not using a pie crust! It was still good though, and I used a berry/lemon drink instead of just lemon, so it was pink and my daughter loved it!
nice pie... good for you amy!
love... 211pie xxx
we didnt like it very much. it was very very sweet
If I am reviewing wrong forgive me. I made this pie it is excellent if you reduce the sugar and use real butter instead of margarine and use lemon zest instead of the flavored drink powder. ( Whats REALLY in that stuff anyway?) I made 11 of these for my cafe and found I liked it without a crust better and it needed to be chilled thoroughly to cut right. ( Im using a pie slicer sprayed with a small amount of oil but I still think with a knife this pie needs to be almost freezing to cut well for presentation. A good recipe but needed a few changes. Thanks!
