Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Without a doubt, my most favorite pie. I always used to have it for my birthday, with candles and everything. (Colored wax on the meringue was part of the fun...)

Watch the meringue baking like a hawk -- it can burn in the time it takes you to answer a telemarketer.
