.Im in my 70's and have not seen an old fashion Lemon Meringue pie recipe like this in ages. I can just taste it and forget those store bought pies. Lemon Meringue is still my favorite. Alleluia

Please help!! I sometimes have a sugery juice that always leaves the crust wet. What am I doing wrong either with the meringue or the pie???

Oh My God. This lemon-meringue pie is AMAZING! Instead of lemon I used one grapefruit—both zest and juice.mIt had no difference in taste whatsoever and this will definetely be my to-go pie! Love It! REMEMBER TO CHECK FRIDGE BEFORE MAKING ANY FOOD. I had a meltdown when I realized there was no lemon left, only a half. But, it tasted so good still! LOVE IT!

Make sure your filling is very hot in the pie shell as that is what cooks the bottom of the meringue. Otherwise, you will get water. Seal the meringue to the edges of the pie crust or it will shrink and become a circle of meringue in the middle. Cook at lower temp and for a longer period. It can take a good 20 minutes for the meringue to cook but not be brown on top.
