Lemon Meringue Pie...

finished product
All of a sudden, I had the illest craving for lemonade, that sweet tanginess that reminds you of summer. Then, my favorite was like, “What about lemon meringue pie?! Or lemon cookies… mmm.”
That was it. I haaad to have lemon meringue pie. “We are making lemon meringue pie!!!”
This is the recipe we used.
First we made the meringue part.
Then we zested the lemon.

And then we heated up the cornstarch mixture....
warm cornstarch mixture
And mixed it with the four yolks from the meringue.

After mixing in butter, lemon zest and lemon just with the other mixture, It was time to put it in the already baked crust.

Finally, it was time to put the meringue on top, and put that bad boy in the oven. So excited.

After baking the pie till the meringue was golden, came the most agonizing part. The recipe suggests you let the pie cool completely before slicing. UGH. Patience is not one of my virtues, especially when it comes to sweet things. But we did indeed wait. It turned out to taste delicious, but cutting it was a bit messier than expected. The filling did not stiffen and set enough, so the middle was a little runny, but still delightful. It was such a great new adventure, since I had never made lemon meringue pie before! Next time, it will be even better.... dreaming of fluffy meringue till then...


  1. Looks like you did a good job on the zesting. I wish I had a slice now. Two earlier was not enough.

  2. too bad mine is better.
