HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lately I have been CRAVING all things lemon and have thus far satisfied this craving with lemon cake, and a lemon Bismark Donut, and Citrus drinks including Lillian’s SLUSH!  As it is a NEW YEAR, I thought I should celebrate the 1st of January with trying something new!  So this was my very first attempt at a Lemon Meringue Pie and all in all I think it turned out great!  I am not a big crust fan and think that next time I will simply make the lemon filling into little individual custards topped with Meringue!  I do know that most people LOVE crust so feel free to make and eat all of the crust you like…with no judgement from me!  This particular filling recipe was adapted from Paula Deen’s Recipe on Food Network.

We had some good friends over to enjoy this pie with us and their little son Cooper even enjoyed a small slice.  Watching his cute little face smile at the first taste and then slowly move into an involuntary pucker was one of the CUTEST things I have ever seen! We were all laughing really really hard watching him eat it, and then he started cracking up too in between bites enjoying the attention!  It was a pretty wonderful and precious moment…all thanks to this pie!  That in itself is a reason to try it!
