A frigid day in February. High time to inject a dose of cheer into our menu.
And what better way to pull it off than with a lemon pie?

Reduced for a quick sale: five lovely lemons for 99 cents. The produce guy at Save-a-Lot really made my day.

My mom threw together lemon-meringue pie quite often when I was a pup. Like it was nothin'.

Well, it's not a one-bowl recipe, let me tell you.
Firstly, there's all that slicing, squeezing, and grating. Next, you must roll out a pie crust. Then you make the filling, which turns out to be a constant stir-fest and is accompanied by sloppy measuring cups and sticky spatulas.
Oh yeah-- whip the egg whites (room temperature, of course!) for the meringue.
All this fuss for one cheerful pie.

I'm telling ya.

Here is our plate of sheer happiness: lemony goodness sandwiched between flaky pastry and oh-so-magical meringue.

Aren't you happy just thinkin' about it?
