It is such a refreshing and light ending to any meal. It is my most "complimented" dessert.
This pie needs to be made 24 hours ahead of desired serving time. BUT it is WELL worth the wait!!
- egg whites
- 1/4 tsp
- cream of tartar
- 3/4 c
- small box (about 3 oz) lemon pie/pudding filling (not instant)
- 1 c
- whipping cream
While cooling, cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the filling.
Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar. Beat until stiff and glossy. Spread in well-greased 9 inch pan. (I use glass).
Don't worry if the meringue cracks while cooking; just cover with the whipped cream.
