Mom's Chocolate Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
I found this recipe on a different website, and not having the benefit of reading the reviews, I made the pie following the recipe exactly as stated. The pie did set up fine, but only after hours of cooling. My husband was so eager for a piece that he helped himself within 2 hours of the pie cooling on the countertop. Big mistake! A big soupy mess. I thought for sure I had a "pie fail" on my hands. However, after about 4-5 more hours of cooling, the rest of pie sliced up just fine. 3 TBS of cornstarch worked fine for me. However, I give just 4 stars because I didn't find the flavor to have much depth, the taste is reminiscent of JELL-O chocoate pudding, not a rich homemade creamy flavor that I would expect.

Bill Clinton's Lemon Chess Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
This was very good! I took the advice of other reviews by increasing the lemon juice to 1/2 cup. It tasted great--not too tart and not too sweet; the flavor of the lemon really shined. My only caveat is that my pie did not look nearly as "pretty" as the display picture. Instead of a smooth custard, mine appeared grainy, even though it did cut cleanly. Perhaps I didn't mix it enough. All said, 5 stars for my new go-to lemon pie.

Sugar Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly and was very impressed with the result. The texture was creamy and smooth, but light. It looked so pretty coming out the pie pan, the filling held up beautifully and could be cut cleanly with just a kitchen knife. I might add more sugar next time as I like a sweet custard, but my husband loved it as is. Thanks for an easy recipe!
