1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
fresh lemon juice
1 (9 inch)
prepared graham cracker crust
4 1/2 teaspoons
The recipe makes a terrific, easy
lemon meringue, which was a big hit.
The directions on the meringue should
include the addition of vanilla in the
final beating process (inadvertently
omitted in the directions), and I recommend
increasing the amount of meringue on the
pie, since the amount in the recipe does
not make a very high meringue top. I used
low-fat sweetened condensed milk, and it
turned out fine, with no impact on the
consistency of the pie. It has great
flavor and consistency.
I must admit that part of the reason that this came out so badly was because I had never attempted a lemon meringue pie before & did not really know what to expect in preperation. Still, these directions were terrible & the only way to make this pie taste better would be to set it on fire & go buy a good one instead. I shudder every time I remember the taste of it.
Easy recipe that becomes great with some changes.
-additional egg for the meringue
-1/2cup of sugar to the meringue
-fresh lemon juice, a full 3/4 cup.
-1/4 cup of sugar to the lemon juice.
A regular pie crust works great with this recipe, and be sure to cook the pie until set, and then add the meringue! It took abou 15 minutes to brown the merginue, be sure to watch it though!
This is the recipe my Great-grandmother used and the only one my family likes. It is sweet, smooth and creamy with a delicious lemon flavor. The recipe is so easy and turns out great every time.
Quick, easy, and delicious. I only use 2 egg whites for the meringue and add 1/4 cup sugar to it. I also use a little less lemon juice.
Almost Momma's recipe. Except she used 3 eggs (yolk and white) and 1 Tbsp of sugar per egg white for meringue. She also added in lemon zest with the lemon juice. Be sure to completely seal pie with meringue, leaving no holes.
Followed according to recipe. Thought it was good but would be great (for me) if it were a tad bit more tart. Also could use more merinque on top.
Very simple, good alternative to the 'traditional' lemon filling- they were fighting over second helpings! (added an extra egg white into meringue)
