Excellent crust - just perfect combination of chewy & crisp. HOWEVER, we must spray PAM in the pie plate prior to spreading the meringue. I was hesitant to spray it for fear the meringue would break down, or not spread, but the absence of PAM makes it impossible to get out of the pan. Will make again tomorrow and use PAM - it will surely turn out better than without it. GREAT crust though.

Awesome, FAB-U-LOUS! Easy and perfect. I didn't have cream of tartar and it still came out great. Used the Pam like previous reveiwer said. We are a gluten free household, so this is such a delight to have a crust and be able to use the fruits of season for deserts. The toughest testers - 3 pre-teen boys... all said they liked the crust. I put peaches on it that I had made with a gelatin while the crust was baking and setting. Drizzled creamy sour cream over it and dusted with cinamon! A total keeper.

This is a great recipe!! I filled the shell with lightly sweetened raspberries and topped with whipped cream. It was a hit! Note: Don't try to use Splenda instead of sugar- it doesn't work.

I used this to make individual meringue shells for Raspberry Schaum Torte. Baked them at 275 degees for 45 minutes. Because I made these ahead of time, it gave the shells plenty of time to dry out and once it was time for dessert it was a snap to assemble and serve.

Turned out great! I didn't bake it for quite as long as the recipe called for (I was worried it was too long) but the crust ended up coming out slightly underdone. So- bake it for the full time! I'm filling it with the pastry cream from this site and plan to top it with strawberries!

Wish I would have used PAM too but other than that, I filled it with lemon custard and it was awesome. The crust is like cotton candy.. Melts in your mouth.

Delicious, easy, and just the right amount of sweetness.

This crust is especially nice with a lemon chiffon filling. I knew it as Lemon Angel Pie when I worked at the Bomber in Milwaukie, OR. Yum!
