Lemon Meringue Pie

Shelly Powers


Lemon Meringue is my sisters favorite pie and because it's her birthday today, I have made pie! This little creation is so yummy. The lemon is tart but sweet and the combination makes me salivate just thinking about cutting into this bugger and eating it! Of course I won't since I have to go deliver it to my sister! Happy Birthday Shirley! Enjoy!
