Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe

Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe

It seems that lemon-based treats are a thing on Corinne & Kirsty. We already have two lemon cake recipes here and here. And we are not going to stop any time soon. Lemon is such a great fruit to work with. To make your afternoon look much more exciting, we’re bringing you a super delicious yet easy recipe for a lemon meringue pie! Ready, set, bake!

-1 Shortcrust pastry roll
-2 lemons
-180g white sugar
-6 eggs
-20cl crème fraîche
-150g icing sugar

1. Pre-heat your over at temperature 180°C. Spread the pastry in a round baking pan. Pierce with a fork in multiple places. Put baking beans on top. Bake for ten minutes in the oven.

2. In a bowl, put two full eggs and two yolks. Set the two whites apart. Add the crême fraîche and the sugar. Mix thoroughly.

3. Grate the lemons to retrieve the zests. Then, squeeze them for the juice. Mix the lemon juice and zest with the mixture.

4. Take the baking pan out of the oven. Remove the baking beans. Add the lemony mixture. Bake for thirty minutes.

5. In another bowl, use the two whites you had previously set apart. Add two other whites. Whip them to a light mousse. Add the icing sugar, little by little, still whipping.

6. After the thirty minutes have gone, add the meringue mixture on top of the pie. You can dry patterns on the surface with a spoon or a fork. Put it back in the oven for ten minutes.

7. Leave the pie on the oven (turned off) for 40 minutes so that the top of the meringue gets crunchy.

8. Pour yourself a cup of tea, get a slice and enjoy!

So, what do you think? Do you love lemon meringue pie? Or just lemon based cakes? Are you hungry now? Wanna bake a pie soon?

Hope you liked the recipe.

    I have never tried making my own meringue but I do love a good piece of lemon meringue pie so I think the next thing I need to do is give making this a whirl.

  15. August 17, 2017 / 4:04 pm

    I absolutely love lemon meringue but I haven’t been able to have it in so long 😭 Still searching for a way to be able to make a vegan version 💖

    I absolutely adore lemon meringue pie! I made my first one not that long ago and I was so proud of myself hehe! My Mum is master baker in my house so to cook anything that rivals her offerings is always a source of pride! I will definitely be trying out your recipe as your meringue looks perfect – although I can’t promise not to devour the whole pie in one sitting…. 😉

      It’s hard not to eat the whole pie in one go lol we understand the feeling :p x

  18. August 17, 2017 / 4:07 pm

    Hi, this looks so inviting I wish I could eat a piece with a nice cup of tea. I would have a nice lemon drizzle cake, dairy free of course as a safe alternative. Luckily I have a flapjack with me at the moment, not quiet the same though, Chloe.

    • August 17, 2017 / 5:21 pm

      Flapjack is amazing too though! Really craving it at the moment ^^ x

  19. August 17, 2017 / 4:08 pm

    This is one of my favorite kinds of pie in the world! It looks so good, too. I’m terrible at merengue but maybe I’ll give it a try again!!

    This looks incredible! Lemon meringue pie is one of my all time fave desserts. Thanks for sharing.


  21. August 17, 2017 / 4:15 pm

    Lemon is one of my all time favorite dessert flavors. I don’t know why it’s not as popular as some others. Your pie is legitimately beautiful! Like, I would have thought it was a professional stock photo if I didn’t know otherwise. I’m sure it must be equally delicious too. For my love of lemon desserts, can you believe I haven’t had lemon meringue pie??? I’ll have to save this recipe!

  26. August 17, 2017 / 5:45 pm

    Oh wow – just the first picture had me wanting pie! This looks like a simple recipe and more-so, it looks like it’ll take wonderful, as most store-bought pies have some kind of fake taste to it that I don’t like.

  27. August 17, 2017 / 8:07 pm
