Lemon Meringue Pie




Lemon Meringue Pie

I got this recipe from a book called 'Baking Day'
I really wanted to try my hand at pastry, as i'd never tried to make it from scratch before. i'd also never attemped meringue either!
This recipe was super easy to follow and the pie turned out really good!
I may need to work on my presentation, but it tasted phenomenal!!
one stage that i found pretty tricky was adding the water to the cornflour! its the oddest thing, i goes hard! it took me a couple of attempts to get the consistency right.
the lemon filling did come out quite runny, it tasted amazing but next time i might change the amount of cornflour, or the boiling time to make it a thicker consistency.
although i think if i'd let it cool slightly before tucking in, it might have thicken up on its own! i was just too impatient!

I was amazingly proud of myself for getting this right! it has boosted my pastry confidence! next on my list to try is a tradtional apple pie and a pumpkin pie!

Thank you for reading my blog, dont forget to leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

  1. You did it all by hand? Wow! You are determined, aren't you! Hope you get a kitchen aid mixer for Christmas! Is Paul reading this???

  2. Holy crap girl, you made meringue with a whisk? You're nuts! I don't have a Kitchen-aid either. Can't afford it, don't have the room for it. But I just don't make things like this, the most daring thing I do is whipped cream.

  3. That is awesome that you whipped that all up by hand, you did a great job! Remember what they said about the ugly duckling...
