Lemon Meringue Pie is my love! In fact, on many occasion hubby has brought me home a pie over flowers because he knows I will enjoy that so much more!
Growing up, my favorite pie was always lemon meringue and my mom made it the best! Now it’s my turn to make the best Lemon Meringue Pie and I use the same recipe that my mom always did. It’s actually on the side of the Lemon Jello Box!

When it comes out of the oven it is all golden and I just want to it! BUT, it must cool before you cut into it or it will just be a gooey mess.
The next picture was supposed to be a beautiful slice of pie. But I waited so anxious to have a slice that I completely forgot to take a picture of that. OOPS! But let me tell you, it was AMAZING!
