Hi Rita - I have the regular sized Kitchen Aid and it all fits! I was a bit worried at first but it all fit - although it was a little tight! Really, this is SO good, you need to try it - and it makes 4 loaves - so freeze the other three, youll be so glad you have it on hand! Just make sure to mix everything except the flour first, then add the flour, without the mixer running, then turn it on very slow and it all will come together pretty quick - less than a minute even! Merry Christmas to you! Nan To: nans17@hotmail.com

Hi Sharon: The original recipe does not say to cool the pie before baking the meringue. I have put the meringue right on top of a very warm pie, baked/browned it and it worked great but there was some weeping when the pie was cut, nothing too bad though. It is best to let the pie cool, it doesnt have to be completely cold or even room temperature, just not hot. Happy Thanksgiving! Nan To: nans17@hotmail.com
