It's still Chilling BUT I saw on another site with this same pie on w/a crust that you must chill it for 61/2 hrs...I'm so glad I made it tonight. Instead of on TDay!!! Also my meringue never turned into meringue we whipped the egg white/cream of tartar and vanilla...finally I added some sugar and TADA!!!! I had stiff peaks in about 2 minutes...WAS THE SUGAR LEFT OUT OF THE meringue part by accident????
