My Dad told me the only thing he wanted for a Christmas treat was a lemon meringue pie made completely from scratch like my grandmother made when he was a child, so I found this recipe. I read the reviews on it, and as most people did, I only used a cup of sugar as opposed to the cup and a half it calls for. I put the meringue on while the custard was still hot and let it set on my counter to slowly cool. I experienced NO weeping, and when I cut into the pie, once it was completely cooled to room temperature, it wasn't watery at all. This was absolutely amazing. I put a bit of the lemon zest in the meringue as well as my Grandmother used to make hers like that, and my Dad said it was pretty darn close, but Grandmother's was a tad bit sweeter, so next time I will do 1 1/4 cup of sugar. Over all, this recipe was amazing and I am SO thankful I could put a smile on my Dad's face and know that one bite took him back to memories of his childhood. Thank you to the Author!!
