Dont let the meringue part of this lemon meringue pie intimidate you. This dessert is going to become the best you ever made with these tips, perfection is just a few minutes away.

  • Egg Whites: Separating the egg yolks from the egg whites is super important. If you get even a smidge of egg yolk in your egg whites, your meringue will be ruined. To help you avoid that separate the eggs while they are are still cold. Cold eggs separate better than room temperature.
  • Room Temperature: However, room temperature egg whites will whip up easier and better so after you separate them, let your egg whites come to room temperature.
  • Create The Peaks: It might take some patience but you will want to make sure your peaks are good and stiff. Dont worry it will come
  • Design: This is the most fun part. With the back of a spoon gently create swirls and whirls for your meringue, they will look awesome when youve browned them.
  • To Brown the Meringue: I used a kitchen torch to get that golden brown look you want. But you can get the same look by moving the oven rack close to the top and turning on your broiler. place the lemon meringue pie in the oven and watch it carefully turning as needed to brown it evenly.

Three Reasons To Make This Classic Lemon Pie With Meringue Topping This Spring:

  • The filling is made with heavy cream and milk, which means this is an ultra rich and smooth lemon pie filling. Most lemon meringue pies are made with water, but the heavy cream and milk yield a luxurious filling.
  • The meringue is tall and light as a feather. Im a firm believer that there should be a ratio of more meringue to filling, and this pie does not disappoint.
  • Honey. This recipe uses both sugar and honey in the filling, because honey pairs incredibly well with fresh lemon. It creates an evenly sweet pie that isnt too tart, but isnt too sweet either. And let me tell you, a lemon meringue pie with honey? Its an absolute winner.

    How To Make A Lemon Meringue Pie From Scratch:

    • Crust: I am partial to a homemade pie crust, which does require a bit of chilling time, but the flakiness and flavor is hard to beat.
    • You can make the pie dough ahead of time.
    • Or, you can use a store bought crust.
  • Blind Bake the Crust: The crust needs to be blind baked. The filling is cooked on the stove, and the meringue is toasted in the oven for only a short while, so the crust will be undercooked if its not blind baked.
  • Filling: The lemon filling is made on the stove with cream and milk, which makes the lemon filling much creamier and richer than a lot of classic lemon meringue pie recipes .
  • Meringue: I love a lot of meringue on top of a pie, and this recipe piles the meringue high and deep. Its toasted in the oven until golden brown .
  • Cool: Meringue can sweat if not cooled properly . Once the meringue has toasted, let the pie cool for one hour, until its at room temperature. Then chill it for 3-4 hours, uncovered.
  • you can serve the pie at room temperature, but just note the filling and meringue might be a bit more unstable than if you let it chill before serving.
  • if you need to chill for longer, place toothpicks in the meringue and cover with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic wrap is resting on top of the toothpicks. This will keep the plast wrap from destroying the meringue topping.
  • Three Option : Tofu Lemon Curd

    Food For The Fresh: Lemon Meringue Pie

  • Bring this to a boil and then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes, until you have a thick mixture in the pan.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vegan butter, lemon zest, and food coloring .
  • Pulse tofu in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  • Add the lemon mixture from the saucepan and pulse it all together until smooth.

    Lemon Meringue Pie Overnight Oats


    Another breakfast with a delicious name. Im all about making the names of recipes appealing to kids- just like putting Dora the explorer on a box of gummy fruit snacks sells to kids, so does a tasty sounding name! Since we as parents are facing aisles loaded with these types of attractive boxes, we should be using every free card we get to make nutritious, homemade foods sound awesome!

    Lemon meringue pie overnight oats. First a confession. Im an extreme lemon pie lover. As in, growing up it was the only type of pie I would eat. As in, dont even show me the berry or pumpkin pies, because they arent going to cut it.

    So when I decided to try make overnight oats, lemon pie hopped right into my mind and parked its lovely self there sweet and sour, creamy, and ready when I wake up. What could be better?

    It turns out that lemon goes very well in a cold breakfast oatmeal recipe- much better than heated. Although my 4 year old loved them warmed up, so who am I to decide?
