This zingy lemon meringue pie sits in a crunchy and fluffy homemade buttercream crust and features a light mound of Italian meringue-like on top that makes it easy to prepare yet so special!

This pie is a lemon lover’s dream ! I liked this recipe with a homemade buttercream crust but you can make crushed biscuits or a walnut crust if desired. The contrast between the crunchy buttery crust and the soft, gentle filling is wonderful. If you don’t like meringue, you can always have a generous amount of whipped cream instead!
