How early to make meringue?

mocro | Mar 29, 2007 01:54 PM

I'm making a lemon meringue pie this weekend and like to brown meringue when my guests arrive so lemon filling will still be warm when we have dessert. Anyone have a sense of how early I can make the meringue and top pie with it before baking? I'm in LA, but it's not hot here yet. Thanks.
