Lammas Mama's Lemon Meringue Pie

Clouds of meringue float above perky, fresh lemon pudding nestled in a light crust with crunch.  So many good things in one place!  "Lammas" refers to the midway point between summer solstice and the fall equinox, which is when this recipe was created.  And "Mama's" comes from the fact that the luscious Meyer's lemons used came from my Mom's tree!

Meringue can be a challenge, even for experienced bakers!  This version is said to be foolproof, holding its own even in damp weather.

Ah!  A beautiful, airy crown for a rich cream or lemon pie.  This version of meringue is less complicated than the Italian recipe and provides reliable results. 

Baker's sugar has a finer crystalline structure than regular sugar, so it dissolves more easily.  It's available at most grocery stores.
