Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe From Great Grandmother

So, I hear you are looking for a new Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe. This is the best lemon meringue pie around. It is easy to make and this recipe has rich ingredients like condensed milk. This recipe has been in the family for years. It belonged to my great grandmother, Lula Holland, who was born February 6, 1897. Although I never met her, since she passed before I was born, I love her recipes dearly.

I was so happy that my Lemon tree in my backyard started producing fruit. I couldn’t wait to go pick a few fresh lemons from the tree, so I could start making delicious recipes like this pie.

You can’t beat fresh lemon. The smell of citrus straight from the tree gives such richness and flavor to any recipe. I always suggest if you can grow your own produce, do it. It really makes a difference in your recipes.

This Lemon Meringue Pie is for those that love the taste of lemon. Even cutting into the pie, my mouth begins to water from the anticipation of the first bite. With the delicious graham cracker crust and the lemon filling that has that perfect tart flavor, I dare you not to say hmmmm.

I won’t make you wait any longer. Below you will find my recipe for Lemon Meringue Pie. Please let me know in the comments how it turned out.
