Hey, What Do You Think about My Very First Lemon Meringue Pie?


Lemon Meringue Pie

Yes! I gave this a try this afternoon to use up the lemon curd that I made the other day. My very first lemon meringue pie! What do you think?

I've been wanting to make a pie with meringue looking like these. Well, at my very first try, my meringue didn't turn out as artistic as those photos, but still not too bad, I guess. And just as I expected, the combination of lemon curd and meringue is oh so very good! ;)
Yum!

Your lemon meringue pie looks great! You could sell it in a cake shop. That's something I've been meaning to try myself sometime, I just hope it's not too tricky...

I think your Lemon Meringue looks fantastic. I can even taste its sourness and sweetness from your picture. :D

Thanks. In my case, with a pre-made lemon curd and store-bought pie crust, it wasn't tricky at all. Hahaha...;)

Your pie looks great. Around here, a lot of diners pile the meringue amazingly high, so that the pie is nearly smothered under the topping.

I couldn't find a photo (I guess I should go out and take some) but the topping is higher than the one in this picture: http://oldrecipebook.com/images/lemonpie.jpg

I really wonder how they make the meringue so tall. Mmmm...There must be a secret. ;)
