My 1st time making lemon meringue and it worked! I read a lot of reviews and here's what worked for me. I followed the recipe exactly as stated. 2 important things - cook your pie shell first and increase the number of hours this really takes to about 8 hours. I had time for it to cool but not chill and it wasn't quite as great. Luckily, I made 2 pies and the next day served the other chilled one - incredible! Also, definitely double the recipe for the filling. It was great, can't imagine how little there would be if I hadn't doubled it. I kept meringue portion the same and it was enough for me but not a gigantic portion. I didn't know how to do meringue so here's what I learned. Whisk the eggs until foamy also means - until it doubles or triples in size so go beyond just the foamy part.
