A Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe

Lemon Meringue Pie

Who does not love some lemon-based treat? Not me, probably not you! I am such a sucker for all lemony sweet treats that I am always looking for new ways to use lemon! It is such a shame that my boyfriend is not such a fan because I am loving baking with lemon. Thus, why not make your afternoon snack look much more exciting and you a super delicious yet easy recipe for a lemon meringue pie! Ready, set, bake!

Ingredients:
-1 Shortcrust pastry roll
-2 lemons
-180g white sugar
-6 eggs
-20cl crème fraîche
-150g icing sugar

1. Pre-heat your over at temperature 180°C. Spread the pastry in a round baking pan. Pierce with a fork in multiple places. Put baking beans on top. Bake for ten minutes in the oven.

2. In a bowl, put two full eggs and two yolks. Set the two whites apart. Add the crême fraîche and the sugar. Mix thoroughly.

3. Grate the lemons to retrieve the zests. Then, squeeze them for the juice. Mix the lemon juice and zest with the mixture.

4. Take the baking pan out of the oven. Remove the baking beans. Add the lemony mixture. Bake for thirty minutes.

5. In another bowl, use the two whites you had previously set apart. Add two other whites. Whip them to a light mousse. Add the icing sugar, little by little, still whipping.

6. After the thirty minutes have gone, add the meringue mixture on top of the pie. You can dry patterns on the surface with a spoon or a fork. Put it back in the oven for ten minutes.

7. Leave the pie on the oven (turned off) for 40 minutes so that the top of the meringue gets crunchy.

8. Pour yourself a cup of tea, get a slice and enjoy!

    I love baking, it’s like therapy for me and although my husband would say that we could just buy whatever in the bakery, there’s nothing quite like making your own! Right? This pie sounds like heaven and I’d love to try your recipe!

    This brings back some great childhood memories. As a kid in used to LOVE lemon meringue pie. As an adult, I’d love to try a vegan variety of this dish!

    I have never made a Lemon Meringue Pie. My grandmother used to make them and she would never share her recipe. They were beautiful and I still to this day remember the way they tasted. I am going to call Mum and she if she knows the recipe. Yours looks wonderful.

    So, what do you think? – I am honestly dying to know where is the tea set from! It`s gorgeous.
    Do you love lemon meringue pie? Or just lemon based cakes? Not into the zesty desserts but I love lemons in their pure form, and lemonade, gosh! I love lemonade.
    Are you hungry now? Honestly, I am. Your imagery looks stunning and I am sure the pie is delicious.
    Wanna bake a pie soon? Yes, but if I will try and bake anything my kitchen will be on fire.
