The Lemon Meringue Pie recipe with Chirpy!


For the crust:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • A pinch of salt

For the lemon filling:

  • 2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

For the meringue:

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • A pinch of salt

Preparation Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven at 350°F. Make the crust by mixing flour, cold butter, powdered sugar, and salt until it looks like sand. Add the egg and mix quickly to form a dough ball. Spread the dough in a 9-inch pie pan. Poke the bottom with a fork and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Bake the crust for 15 to 20 minutes, or until it is lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let it cool down.
  3. Make the lemon filling by mixing lemon juice, zest, sugar, eggs, and cornstarch in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the mixture thickens. Add the butter bit by bit, whisking continuously until the filling is smooth. Pour the lemon filling on the cooled crust and smooth the surface.
  4. Make the meringue by beating egg whites with a pinch of salt until they are foamy. Gradually add the sugar while continuing to beat until you get firm peaks. Mix in the vanilla. Spread the meringue on the lemon filling, making peaks with a spatula. Bake the pie for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the meringue is golden. Watch closely to avoid burning the meringue.
  5. Allow the lemon meringue tart to cool completely before cutting and serving. Store it in the refrigerator if necessary.

Enjoy your delicious homemade pie!
