REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I've been trying various Lemon Icebox Pie recipes for many, many years. The search is over and I can throw away all the other recipes I've used in the past. The one thing I did different, I added some marshmellow cream to my meringue mixture. It was great!

Delicious and very easy. If making the meringue, I would suggest adding 1 more egg white to the meringue for fuller coverage over the pie. My company loved it!

This was so easy and delicious. You HAVE to try it! I made this recipe because I was just craving lemon pie and it totally hit the spot. For the meringue, I didn't use cream of tartar because I didn't have any. Instead I added a drop of lemon juice and a dash of salt to the egg whites. As I beat the egg whites, I slowly added the sugar. It turned out perfectly. Another note, I reduced the cooking time for the filling to 18 minutes instead of 25 and the filling ended up too runny. Follow the recipe. It's perfect! A total crowd pleaser!
