Lemon Pie on Cookie sheet

I cook for large crowds, and making it on cookie sheets makes it easier to serve large groups. It's easier to cut up and serve small squares than large pieces of pie.

Some like it served while still a little warm, but it does need to sit for several hours first. Refrigerate if not serving the same day. No need to cover, because the crust will keep better.

NOTE:
To keep meringue from sticking to knife while cutting , dip knife into hit water or run underhot tap water.
