"Finally, a show-stopping lemon meringue pie that is also easy to make. If you do not wish to grate lemon zest, use 1/4 teaspoon of lemon extract in its place."

I tried this recipe several times. The taste is great, but it never thickened. I would love for someone to post a fix to this. Could using real lemons botch the recipe?

I remember my grandmother making this for us as kids! It's the BEST!!

This is a pretty good lemon pie, but the layers were too thin. They would probably be OK in a small, prepared graham shell but not for my pie pan. I recommend doubling both the filling & merin...
