How to keep lemon meringue pie from weeping?

TorontoJo | Aug 23, 2007 07:47 AM

Apologies to all, as I know I have read a thread on this topic before. But, as usual, I can't get the search function to turn it up for me.

So I'm making a lemon meringue pie on request for a "back to university" going-away dinner for a friend's son. This is not a pie that I have made before, and I would like to know:

1) Why do some fillings weep?
2) What can I do to avoid the problem?

I seem to recall that humidity played a factor, but would love to hear from the experts on this!

Many thanks!
