I thought it might be a good idea to test the recipe out before the party since meringues can be tricky. So, last night I stopped by the grocery store and picked up the ingredients.
The results of this test were great. The flavor is delightful and full of lemony goodness. The only drawback in my test was that I had to use my 11-inch tart pan and the recipe calls for a 9-inch. For the filling it didn't seem to matter much, however, I could have used a bit more meringue to mound it up on top more. Still, it worked nicely enough for a test and I know for next month to increase the meringue by half at least.
Since this was a test run, I opted to use a store bought refrigerated crust. However, you can use your favorite flaky pie crust to make it completely homemade.
This is a great spring and summer dessert and sure to impress guests. I didn't even take great pains in piping the meringue and it still turned out beautifully. If you choose to really take some time with it and create nice effects you'll blow your guests away.
