Can I cut the amount of lemon juice in Rose’s Lemon Meringue Pie to just 1/3 or 1/4 cup as my family thinks 1/2 cup of lemon juice is too tart? Also, my prebaked pie crust sticks to the bottom of my glass pie plates. All suggestions welcome.

‘Pie in the Sky’ moderates the sourness of a light lemon filling by using part freshly squeezed orange juice. It still tastes like straight lemon, just a little gentler and richer.

Patrincia,  Orange juice sounds like a great idea.  I’m making a pie tomorrow and I will use this tip along with incorporating a few other great hints I received from some thoughtful others.  What a great web site this turned out to be.  Thanks everyone!!!
