Lemon Meringue Pie

It’s a Valentine Baking Collab and I’m adding a little zest to my V-Day treat!

Lemon Meringue Pie

My Valentine likes his sweet treats freshly squeezed and his first pick is always lemon.
In the 11 years we’ve been married…I have not baked a lemon meringue pie…so I squeezed the day and whipped one up for my bitter half!
