Disappointed. I took the advise of other reviewers and used milk (whole milk) instead of water. I also added cream of tartar to the meringue. It came out incredibly runny!! :( I actually had to drain this pie after it was done. There was a lake of liquid on top. I have no idea what went wrong other than the recipe doesn't indicate what size lemons and mine were large (two). If I did try this again, which I'm not convinved I will, I would probably put in less lemon juice since mine seemed to yield about 3/4 to 1 cup. Other than that, I am totally clueless. For the crust I used someone's suggestion here of making the "Butter Flaky Pie Crust" (yes, flakey is misspelled in the title of the recipe) but that just baked like . The entire crust shrinks and you get large, and I'm talking LARGE, bubbles heaping up after baking. Then the entire thing was soaked with the lemon filling. Blah.
