Old Fashioned Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe
When I was a child, I learned how to make this lemon meringue pie. It remains a family favorite to this day. At a pie sale, it sells out quickly.

This lemon meringue pie has a tangy and refreshing flavor. In the photo, you can see the high meringue on top of the thick lemony custard filling. This just makes for an impressive presentation. However, the taste is divine too.
Tips to Cutting the Pie
