Desperate Housewives Secret Lemon Meringue Pie
275 mins (prep 35, cooking 240)
14 ingredients

Katherine Mayfair's secret recipe that made Bree Van De Kamp furious, because "the girls" liked the new neighbor's pie better than Bree's! Bree tried to break into her house to steal the recipe but was unsuccessful. I don't see an exact duplicate on Zaar so maybe it is a secret....not anymore! I like that it's not too sweet, and use Boyajian Lemon Oil in place of the zest, which gives it a strong lemon flavor. Cook time includes chill time. Adapted from Wisteria Lane.
