This pie started with memories of my friend, Laurie, who loves lemon meringue pie. It was my first time attempting a lemon meringue pie . Although the meringue topping was new too me , I needed /wanted to purchase a heat gun for broiling the meringue.
I knew that I wanted the pie to have as much shelf life after making as it possibly could so I decided to make an Italian meringue topping. This was the pan that I was supposed to use; I opted for a normal pie pan.
This recipe had many steps but it was worth it because it was really delicious. My better half gave it the ultimate compliment of being “Thanksgiving Worthy”. A wonderful combination of tart lemon filling and a flavorful tender crust topped with a lovely meringue. This would also be an easy pie to convert to being gluten free since only the crust has wheat in it,
I look forward to making it again.
This is part of a baking project that I participate in on Tuesdays .
