Lemon Meringue Pie: Review

I was watching TV one day and someone on a show was making lemon meringue pie. I instantly had to have one. Unfortunately, lemon meringue pie doesn’t take long to make, but it does take some time before you can cut into it without having a big, gooey mess on your hands. So it wasn’t as instant as I thought, but it was still absolutely delicious and making it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

I got the recipe from the good old fallback site, All Recipes. It was really good and let’s face it, any time you get to whip egg whites into peaks, it’s just fun! (I know, I know, I’ve already been called sick by a few for thinking this.) Coincidentally, a friend of mine was going to send me this recipe before I saw it on TV, and he gave me the tip of using fresh lemons instead of just the juice. I’m always in favour of fresh over anything else, and this recipe certainly benefits from it. And, the zest also adds so much more flavour than just the juice and you just can’t get the zest from a bottle of juice.

This recipe really does taste just like all the lemon meringue pies you ate while you were growing up. And the hardest thing about it is waiting for the filling to set!
