Best Ever Lemon Meringue Pie - homemade lemon pie topped with a quick homemade meringue. (sugar, cornstarch, eggs, milk lemon juice, butter, lemon zest) The pie is ready for the oven in about 10 minutes! This is seriously the BEST lemon meringue pie we've ever eaten! Great for summer cookouts!

Lemon Pie is one of Chicken Legs favorites. So, when I ran across this recipe in one of my cookbooks and had to give it a try. With a name like "Best Ever Lemon Meringue Pie" how could I not?!?

This pie uses a traditional pie crust. I used a frozen pie shell and it worked great. The filling is delicious, but the meringue puts this pie over the top! SO good! The hardest part about making this pie is waiting on it chill! Pure torture!

So, the verdict? Is this the Best Ever Lemon Meringue Pie? We think it is! We both couldn't stop eating this! SO yummy! Give this a try for Mother's Day dessert! You can make this a day in advance an keep it refrigerated until you are ready to serve. I promise Mom will thank you!
