I can taste it, just from your pictures!
I can't wait to try your recipe! I love lemon pie! I like to add chopped pecans to my lemon pie crust to add a little dimension, smooth, creamy & nutty/crunchy
I don't think I've had lemon meringue pie and you sure make it look delicious! Maybe I'll be able to find time to make it this season :D
cheers, let me know how it turns out
