Here's a good recipe I found, I never had Lemon Meringue with a graham cracker crust before it sounds very tasty.

Randi,

My dad really likes Lemon Meringue and he is very picky, and only likes it with a Graham Cracker Crust also. Very peculiar, but it's what I've come to like also. I have always used a recipe from Group Recipes.com

I'll include it here:

Ingredients

For the graham-cracker crust:
1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers (about 8 whole crackers)
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

For the lemon filling:
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
4 large egg yolks
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 3 to 4 lemons)
1 1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest (from 3 to 4 lemons)
For the meringue:
5 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar


How to make it



Place oven rack in the center of oven and heat to 375F.

For the graham-cracker crust:
Combine crushed graham crackers, melted butter, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl and mix well. Press mixture evenly into a 9-inch metal or ceramic pie plate and bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.


For the lemon filling:

Combine cornstarch, sugar, egg yolks, and lemon juice in a medium-size heavy saucepan. Add water and whisk until blended; use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the pan to make sure mixture is well combined.
Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add butter and lemon zest, and stir vigorously until butter is completely melted and ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Pour mixture into graham-cracker crust, cover with a round of waxed paper or parchment paper, and let cool to room temperature.


For the meringue:

Combine egg whites and salt in a large, clean bowl and whip with a hand mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar and continue beating until stiff, glossy peaks form.
Remove the paper from pie and spoon meringue over lemon filling. Spread meringue with a spatula so that it covers the entire surface of the pie, sealing in filling. Be sure meringue meets the crust, otherwise it will shrink inward, exposing filling.
Bake until meringue is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Let cool to room temperature on a wire rack, then refrigerate until filling is cold, at least 4 hours. Slice, and serve chilled.


Enjoy!!

I also found that recipe, and I thought it sounded good! So thanks, you guys

And it always helps when someone's tried out a recipe. So, I'm glad to have your recommendation, Lissa. I know you know food!

Randi, just as I said on fb, that is one beautiful pie. Now we need you to cut a slice and take a pic, and then eat some and tell us how good it is.
