My mom used to make this pie for me on holidays. In her memory, I still make this one every Thanksgiving and Christmas. It sometimes doesn't quite set as solid as a typical lemon meringue pie, but my favorite is to eat it a little warm and gooey. Otherwise it will set in the refrigerator to a pudding like consistency.
