Lemon Meringue Pie

Last week while I was watching Food Network, I seen Trisha Yearwood's show Trisha's Southern Kitchen for the first time. What a great show~btw. She was doing some down home cooking and one of the recipes that she made was for Lemon Meringue Pie. It's a very simple recipe, so I thought I'd give it a try. You can find her recipe HERE.

Ingredients for pie

I used my own recipe for the Graham Cracker Crust which is found HERE when I posted about a delicious Blueberry Cheesecake.
I made the filling just as directed by Trisha but when I make it again, I think I'll add some cornstarch to the filling. Mine turned out a little too runny for our liking but the flavor was fantastic.
In the eggs whites I also did something different which was to add about 1/2 tsp of Lemon Extract. It made the meringue have a nice subtle taste of lemon, which was great.

For the pie I had to use store bought lemons, I can hardly wait until some of our lemons are ready to be picked. Our trees are loaded with blooms! Oh, the sweet smell. ;)

I hope that you give the recipe a try. It was a very simple one that I will make again with a few minor adjustments.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by
I appreciate each and every visit
Have a fabulous day!

From the Heart,
Jana
