    I have made this pie twice now for my Dad he loves it! I did add cream of tartar when making the meringue! Very easy to make! I also used 5 egg whites for the meringue...

    OMG! This pie was delicious! I made it exactly like the recipe. The filing was not too tart or too sweet. The meringue was nice and fluffy. This was my first attempt at making a homemade lemon pie and it turned out great.

    I love this recipe. I found that you had to use more sugar while making the merengue. Overall a great recipe.
