"Added additional lemon and raspberries to this classic and delicious lemon meringue pie, giving it a less-sweet and brighter flavor. Sometimes I don't make the meringue, I just cool the lemon filling for 3 hours and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and a raspberry at serving time."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie pan. Brush crust with enough egg white to coat with a thin layer.
  2. Cook in the preheated oven until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove crust from oven and cool. Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Cook and stir raspberries in a saucepan over medium heat until raspberries start to break down, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir 1 tablespoon cornstarch into raspberries until cornstarch is dissolved and mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon raspberry mixture into pie crust.
  4. Combine 1 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup cornstarch in a saucepan; gradually stir in water and 1/2 cup lemon juice until smooth. Stir egg yolks into sugar mixture; bring to a boil. Cook sugar-egg mixture at a boil, stirring constantly, until smooth, about 1 minute. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir lemon pulp, remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice, and butter into sugar-egg mixture; pour over raspberry mixture.
  5. Beat 3 egg whites in a small bowl using an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually beat 1/3 cup white sugar into egg whites until stiff peaks form. Spread egg white mixture over lemon filling, completely sealing egg mixture onto edges of crust.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until meringue is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool pie to room temperature on a wire rack, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate pie until completely chilled, about 3 hours.

I didn’t realize I hadn’t pre-baked the pie shell until the finished pie came out of the oven, meringue beautifully browned, but the crust uncooked...my BIG mistake. I built a large foil tent over the pie to keep the meringue from totally over browning, bumped up the temp to 375, and then put it back into the oven for 15 more minutes. Whew, that seemed to work pretty well, even though the meringue ended up a little browner than I'd have liked. I used fresh raspberries, so I did add just a little water to the pan for some moisture that would have been in there had I used frozen berries. Raspberry and lemon are two flavors that always partner well, and this pie was no exception. You have the sweetness from the raspberries and the tartness from the lemons, so each and every bite is pure bliss! I used Basic Flaky Pie Crust from this site. Thanks ejm228 for sharing your recipe.

Lemon/ raspberry is my family's absolute favorite combination! Beautiful results! I will admit,I substantially increased the raspberry layer,though. A half a cup would have only been a tiny smear of raspberry. I cooked down two full cups because I always run berries through a fine sieve to de-seed. Also whipped 4 egg whites instead of 3 for the meringue. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

I added some water to the raspberries but the pie was amazing.
