When my husband and I were first married, his mom gave me three of his favorite pie recipes and this is one of them. He still loves this pie.

How to Make Lemon Meringue Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat egg yolks slightly. Add lemon juice, condensed milk & vanilla. Mix well then pour into graham crust, add meringue & brown. Cover & refrigerate several hours before serving.
  2. I wash, dry & use the plastic top that comes with the graham crust to keep pie covered.
  3. MERINGUE:
    2 egg whites
    4 Tbsp sugar
    1/8 tsp cream of tartar*
    dash of salt
    1 tsp pure vanilla extract
    Beat egg whites w/electric mixer until frothy. Add in the cream of tartar and salt and continue beating another minute or two. Add the sugar and beat until stiff peaks form (about 2 minutes). Add in the vanilla and beat for another minute or so. Spread onto pie & bake @375 until brown (about 10 or so minutes).
  4. * If you don't have cream of tartar you can use 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder. If you don't have baking powder just use a little more than a dash of salt.
