Thanks. I have tried other recipes but the meringue always seem to have shrunk. But this is the first recipe that the meringue didn't shrink and I was so pleased. My family and friends really liked it.

I made this recipe just as it was written and it turned out great. I posted a pic of it but not sure if it's gonna show up or not. No one could even tell it was sugar free! Thanx for the recipe!

REVIEW: recipe rating
With a tree overflowing with lemons this was one way to use the fruit. The only change I would suggest is a heaped 1/4 cup of cornstarch to hold the lemon filling. The meringue is delicious. Most people don't realize it's made with artificial sweeteners. I use a combination of 2 Tbs sugar and then combine Stevia, Splenda and Maltitol, so that there is no overpowering artificial taste of one brand.
