Mr. and Mrs. Rogers couldn’t dismiss Amelia Bedelia after she made a to-die-for lemon meringue pie.
Part of our Thanksgiving pleasure this year came when Mama and I made our plan for what we would fix. We dug out Mamaw’s cookbook, and I set out to make pies: pumpkin, pecan, coconut, and lemon meringue. I started by cooking another pumpkin up (Mama and I found out that sweet potatoes and pumpkin taste great together). The pumpkin and coconut pies really turned out amazingly well! I couldn’t bring myself to taste the pecan pie after I saw what went into it… The lemon meringue was HARD!
No wonder Amelia Bedelia kept her job so long!
