The meringue steels the show! Fail proof. I'll be using this meringue on other dishes. I recommend you take the few minutes to make the crust. It outshines the store bought and is very simple to make. *recipe was printed from an online source. Not sure which one. Posting here so I do not lose it as it's a family favorite.
