I always need to make 2 of these pies because it goes fast. AND I like to make this pie for our friends when we grill outside and enjoy the warmer weather. It's a very easy recipe. Great taste.

NOTE: I put my bowl and beaters that I am going to use to make the meringue in the freezer while the pie is in the first 30 minutes. It's easier to get the egg whites to peak.
