Can I make meringue for a pie the day before and should it be refrigerated after being made? I'm making a Graham cracker cram pie.

Alternative idea - make and bake meringue as cookies or even the size of the pie. then use it as a cookie-like topping for your pie.

yes to spa. The refrigerated storing of a meringue- and all the ensuing weeping-grossness---- just may not be worth it. meringues are such sweet nothingness; could you be happy w/ a no-fuss lovely whipped cream instead?

Unfortunately, meringue is best made the same day.
