This is a very fun recipe to follow, because Grandma makes it sweet and simple. This pie is thickened with cornstarch and flour in addition to egg yolks, and contains no milk.
Excellent recipe! Nice and lemony, not too sweet with good proportions of curd and meringue. My second attempt on lemon meringue pie. I recommend stirring the curd very frequently to prevent burning.
Finally I have found the perfect recipe for lemon meringue pie! I made this tonight for my dad and it came out great. The only thing that I wasn’t clear on was the amount of lemon juice to use.
I’m an experienced baker but never tried lemon meringue pie because it’s not my favorite. The ones I’ve tried were either sour or gummy or both. A friend requested a lemon pie so I gave it a shot.
