A favorite dessert option is from Disneyland’s Carnation Cafe, the Lemon Meringue Pie. I grew up with Lemon Meringue Pie as this was one my dad’s favorite desserts. We have always been very picky about our lemon pie as many do not have enough lemon flavor. My dad referred to this as “soap suds” vs. lemon. This recipe is very easy and has a wonderful lemon flavor, definitely no soap suds here. If you are a true lemon lover and appreciate a strong lemon flavor, you will love this Lemon Meringue Pie recipe.
