My favorite part of every holiday or gathering is the dessert. There was always enough cookies, cakes, and pies to feed an army. My aunt used to make her famous lemon meringue pie for every family event. She made it all from scratch, from the crust to the whipped cream topping. One Thanksgiving, while everyone was sitting and digesting their dinner, my cat jumped up on the table and started eating my aunt’s masterpiece. My mother sprang into action and carried the cat outside, but the damage had been done: there was a large hole where he had been feasting. My aunt surprised us all by informing us she had another pie in the car, and we did not have to live without her delicious creation. Now with this mix you can make your own crust, no matter which type of pie or occasion.
