All American Pies


All American Pies

Lemon Meringue Pie is one of my husband’s favorites.  It is not a big stretch that I would choose the tart and tangy lemony treat as the feature to celebrate all things pie in honor of Father’s Day, 4th of July and the beginning of summer! I have some incredible pies to share today, so let’s get started!

It is my hope this summer that you are able to take some time to stop and smell the roses, spend time with your family gathering around the (picnic) table, take a moment now and again to be grateful for the blessings we have, AND eat more pie!

  • 1½ cup boiling water
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ⅓ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1½ tbsp grated lemon rind
  • Baked 9" pie shell (see recipe link below)
  1. Combine ½ c. sugar, cornstarch and salt in small sauce pan; mix well.

  5. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolk mixture, blend well.
  6. Immediately pour egg yolk mixture back into remaining hot mixture blending well.
  7. Continue to cook mixture on stove for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  8. Remove from heat. Add butter, lemon juice and lemon rind to mixture, stirring gently until well blended and butter has melted.
  9. Pour into baked pie shell.
  10. To make meringue, beat egg whites until foamy with electric mixer at high speed.
  11. Gradually add 6 tbsp sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, beating well after each addition.
  12. Beat egg whites until stiff, glossy peaks form when beaters are slowly.
  13. Spoon meringue unto lemon pie filling starting with the outer edges first and working your way inwards toward the middle. Finishing with a large mound in the center.
  14. Bake in 425 degree oven 5 minutes, or until the meringue is lightly browned.
  15. Cool on rack.

    I have never heard of fudge pie, so I’m going to definitely check that out from Diane. I have, however, developed a bit of a passion for the lemon meringue pie. I’m craving it now. :) PS stopping by from Thank Goodness It’s Thursday at Ruffles and Rain Boots. Have a wonderful day!

    Love this collection! Shari, as I was admiring how beautiful the collage is, I suddenly realized that MY PEACH PIE was one of them! LOL I almost missed it. Thank you so much for including it.

    The men in our family love lemon meringue pie. Now that I have the recipe, I can make it for them :)

      Pie crusts use to get me every time until I found Martha Stewart’s Pate Brisee recipe. It comes out flaky and buttery every single time. I rarely try any other recipe. Fresh Peach Pie and Sour Cherry pie are next up on my list! Thanks for coming over for a visit! So glad you did. Blessings…Shari

    I adore lemons, and living here in Italy I have access to some of the most gorgeous Sicilian one’s. However, I’ve never even attempted to make a lemon meringue! This looks gorgeous and the perfect American pie to take to a 4th of July in Italia! Thank you so much for sharing
