I'm an amateur with meringue. As per the recipe as I understood it, I turned on the broiler to the highest setting. I'm pretty sure that's about 500 degrees, although the only selections on the broiler section of my electric oven are off, high, and low. How long is "until meringue is set and golden"? I left it in less than two minutes, then smoke started coming out of the oven. The meringue was burnt black, but under the black crust, it wasn't cooked at all. I saved the pie by carefully prying off the crust, then baking it at 350 for 15 minutes. Came out just fine. I figured that I really just didn't know what I was doing, but neighbors, who are pretty good cooks, thought something was wrong with the recipe. How long should I have left it in the broiler?
