This is my husband's favorite after many trials of lemon meringue pie. I add a bit more lemon juice - probably about a 1/4 of a cup. I also use Splenda instead of equal - we think Splenda tastes better.
Pretty good. I tasted too much egg, though.
What a wonderful dish for diabetics! I cannot believe how much it tasted like it had been made with sugar. My fiance (who is diabetic) just loved it! I will definetely make this again!
If I could rate in halves I would give this 3 and a half stars. Overall it had a great taste, but the consistency was a little weird. The custard part was firmer than I like, and the meringue was just....weird. Not sure if I'll make it again, but if I do I think I'll try it with a little less cornstarch in the custard, and I KNOW that I'll use real sugar for the meringue.
