Lemon Meringue Pie

Although I am not a fan of lemon meringue, I made 2 pies for my cousin’s wedding reception this weekend as it is her favourite. I found this recipe on allrecipes & thought I would give it a go!

  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • 2 tbsp All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Water
  • 2 Lemons – juiced & zested
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 4 Egg Yolks – beaten
  • 1 (9″) Pie Crust – baked
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 6 tbsp White Sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the first 4 ingredients. Stir in water, lemon juice & lemon zest & cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture comes to a boil

Stir in butter

Place egg yolks in a small bowl & gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of the hot sugar mixture. Whisk the egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining sugar mixture

Bring  to a boil & continue to cook while stirring constantly until thick

Remove from heat & pour into the baked pastry shell

In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy. Add 6 tbsp sugar gradually, & continue to whip until stiff peaks form

Spread meringue over the pie, sealing the edges at the crust

Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until meringue is golden brown
