the lemon meringue pie for pi day

For Pi Day yesterday, Mare made her first lemon meringue pie from scratch. The pie consists of three parts: the crust, the lemon filling, and the meringue.

The recipes came from Pie Crust IV & Grandma’s Lemon Meringue Pie.

The pie came out good overall. The lemon filling had a good consistency with the perfect combination of tart and sweet. However, the meringue was a little weepy which is a common mistake for amateur pie bakers. Check out’s article on Perfect Meringues under Common Problems.

Mare plans on perfecting her meringue. That means meringue cookies + Baked Alaska for me in the near future. =D
