Creamy Lemon Meringue Pie

First time making lemon meringue pie from scratch. WOW was it delicious. Made the filling and meringue exactly as the recipe is written. Lemon juice came out to about 1/2 cup. Don’t use milk if you want a real lemon meringue pie! Perfect tang and texture. This pie is thickened with cornstarch and flour in addition to egg yolks, and contains no milk.
