    I'mPat's Note:

    This recipe originally came from the MIL and I have been making it for nearly 30 years. For the pie case I usually use a 1/2 portion of my Shortcrust Pastry. Time for making and cooking pastry shell is not included.

      Wow. My husband loves lemon meringue pie and this is far better than anything store-bought. Who knew it was so easy to make too?
