Creamy Meyers Lemon Pie w/ Meringue Topping

I’m old fashioned. I like old things, old songs, old books, old movies…and old recipes!

This old fashioned lemon pie is just that. Sure it’s easy to buy a lemon pie in the grocery store freezer section or order one from your local bakery, but making it yourself is rewarding and delicious! It’s also not very difficult or time consuming at all which makes this recipe even better.

Fresh squeezed Meyer lemon juice gives this Creamy Meyers Lemon Pie recipe its amazing flavor (you can use regular lemons too!). The creamy filling is made with sweetened condensed milk instead of cream. You’ll enjoy this homemade old fashioned lemon pie at any summer picnic or family dinner.
