So, soooo good!! - I only used half the sugar in the lemon curd, and it is plenty! - use really fresh-as-possible lemons, and it's super zingy and absolutely delicious! Most excellent after chilling in fridge for at least 24 hours.

My wife ate 3/4 of the pie in 2 days. So yeah, success.

Tangy and delicious! We used our homegrown duck eggs which whipped light and fluffy for the meringue. Couldn't ask for a better treat for our other for Mother's Day.

Really nice! (A bit overly sweet though)

Really worth trying. Did this for our 12-people pre-Easter family lunch. What a success.

Yummy!! My first time ever making a lemon meringue! I’m happy with the turnout!

The pudding was too sweet and didn’t set up well. The meringue was too salty. Only meringue recipe I found that calls for salt and was a big mistake. Will not be using this recipe again!

it was a great pie. Make sure ingredients are pretty fresh and it will turn out right. Also, filling requires constant stirring.

The lemon curd came out beautifully, tasted like lemonade, which was surprisingly delicious. More of a delicate taste, and the meringue came out beautifully as well. Light, fluffy, and very complimentary to the curd. The one thing I wish I would have done was to chill the crust before baking because it shrunk, but other than that, this was a hit!

Turned out better than I expected! Was easy to make even though o was rather nervous about making meringue. I added a bit more lemon juice and zest which made it even better.

Awesome Definitely added to my make again list.

Came out beautiful and so very tasty! We didn't have an event to serve at, meringue does lose texture after three days in the fridge.

Followed directions exactly, turned out out perfect! It wasn't watery at all all once it cooled and set. Best lemon meringue pie I've ever eaten!
Weronika P. 14 Aug 2016
Amazing! Best lemon meringue pie I've ever made! Followed the recipe and everything came out wonderfully. Everything held together and was not watery at all. Very satisfied. :)

Turned out terrible! The lemon was chunky and tasted like chemicals and the meringue didn't rise. I would never bake this pie again. Plus, it didn't hold up

I made this pie a month ago and doubled the recipe. It was rich, vibrant, sweet, tart, and juicy! It was a bit watery but I haven't had one that didn't water after it cools. I forgot to save this recipe so I made another pie using another recipe from Yummly.....let's just I was extremely disappointed. The color and tartness was awful but I gave it 3 stars for it's resemblance to a Lemon Meringue. Getting back to this wonderful pie. My mother has made this pie since I could remember. I do believe this recipe was stolen from her because it's identical to hers. If you're into the homemade taste of lemon and meringue then you'd be impressed.

Perfect!!! Delicious taste, no modification, best lemon meringue pie recipe ever! I'll do it again for sure!
