Lemon Meringue Pie

Looks pretty delectable doesn't it...and it is! This Lemon Meringue Pie comes from Marty Uhlmann in Dora, she's quite the pie maker!

Any dessert with lemon is blue ribbon in my book! For those of you who aren't a lemon fan- not to worry this pie doesn't have that traditional tart lemon flavor. It's smooth, creamy and the meringue is light and fluffy.
