I made this for a family get together on Memorial Day weekend. I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. From reading other reviews, I zested roughly 1tbs and squeezed 1/2 cup of lemon juice (which ended up being 2 lemons as the recipe says). Once I poured the eggs into my sugar mixture, I only let it boil a minute more so it didn't get too thick. I also baked the pie crust in the oven until it was slightly golden before pouring the curd inside. I used my mixer to make the meringue and poured it over the warm curd. Once out of the oven, I let it sit at room temperature for 1 hour and then put it in the fridge for an additional 5 hours to let it firm up. Another great recipe to keep in my recipe box! I love tartness, so maybe next time I may add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to experiment!
