Recipe help

Okay, today I had a super craving and tried to make a lemon meringue pie. My first mistake was using some canned lemon pie filling in my parent's cupboard. Friggin gross. Believe them when they say fresh is best. Blech.

Secondly, I used this meringue recipe which I got from the recipe index:

Okay. The consistency was right on. However, the taste was like vanilla-y powder. I am chilling it overnight and hope that will help.

But I'm wondering if anybody has any ideas on how to make this work and taste good? I just refuse to believe that we can no longer enjoy meringue.

Somebody should start The Meringue Project or something! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
