“A lemon cream pie with a meringue crust.” - by Ann
Original recipe yields 1 - 10 inch pie
- Preheat oven to 250 degrees F ( 120 degrees C).
- Beat egg whites until stiff. Add cream of tartar and gradually add 1 cup sugar; beat until glossy. Turn the meringue into a well-greased 10 inch pie plate. Spread over bottom and sides of plate, building up the sides 1/2 inch above the edge of the plate. Place in oven, and bake 1 1/2 hours. Turn off oven, and leave meringue inside to cool slowly.
- Combine egg yolks, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons zest, and lemon juice in double boiler. Cook and stir over medium low heat until thick. Cool thoroughly.
- Whip cold cream until stiff. Place half of the whipped cream in the meringue shell. Cover with a layer of the lemon filling and top with the remainder of the whipped cream. This top layer can be put on with a decorative tube. Garnish with remaining lemon zest. Refrigerate.

"Delicious light and yummy lemon pie with a shell that melts in your mouth. The directions do not tell you to put the beaten egg whites into the pie plate and to "mold" the eggwhite edges upwards to ho..." See moreld in the filling after the shell is baked. I have made a similar pie before so I knew to do this. I did not use a bouble bolier as the instructions said, but just cooked the egg yolk mixture over medium low heat until it was thick and began to boil. Be sure to cool both the shell and the lemon mixture completely as the instructions tell you. I used two cups of whipped cream and added a little vanilla and powdered sugar to the whipped cream for a hint of sweetening. I garnished the top with a few fresh red raspberries on each piece. I will definately make this recipe again as it is a real winner. I served this for company and everyone loved it!"
"This is a trustworthy recipe--no "surprises." Just remember that you're not making a pudding type of filling, you're making a curd, which behaves much differently on the stove. I also whip 2 cups of c..." See moreream and add about a quarter cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp. vanilla to it. I lighten the curd by folding in a little of the whipped cream. Not only does this lighten it up, it also gives the base a velvety feel to the tongue. Garnish with lemon rind curls & you've got a winner."
