Deconstructed Gift

I have been making Lemon Meringue Pie for Hubby's birthday for many years now. 
I have always used the same recipe that he found and gave me. 
I never had any issues until last year when I prepared the famous Lemon Soup.
 I can not get it to set up for the life of me anymore.
This year when I announced to the girls I was going to try again. 
One of them, who shall remain nameless, looked at me and said simply, "Mom, please don't".
Fine...and she was right.
I baked a crust and we gathered the remaining ingredients with the recipe card and presented them to him as a gift on the morning of his birthday.
He laughed out loud!
He and his youngest proceeded to make his birthday pie.
