Ingredients

  • 1 pastry (sweet dough)
  • 340 grams powdered sugar
  • lemon juice (10 cl.)
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 2 eggs
  • 160 grams butter (soft)
  • 2 egg whites

Directions

  1. Prepare the sweet pastry dough and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Prepare a double boiler.
  3. Whisk 240 grams of sugar in a bowl with lemon juice, lemon zest, and eggs. Place in the double boiler and cook, stirring occasionally. When mixture comes to a boil, remove from heat, and place the bowl inside a larger bowl filled with ice cubes.
  4. Once the cream becomes warm, add the soft butter, and whisk with an electric mixer for a few minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Spread the dough into a previously buttered pie pan, and pierce the entire surface with a fork.
  7. Bake for about 25 minutes.
  8. Once the dough is cooled, add the lemon cream, and store the lemon pie in the refrigerator.
  9. Prepare the meringue by whipping the egg whites until they become foamy. Gradually add 100 grams of sugar, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form.
  10. Spread meringue over the ice cold pie with a palette knife, sealing the edges at the crust.
  11. Brown the meringue pie under the broiler for a few seconds.

This was really easy to make, I had never made meringue before it this was very easy. I did not want to pipe out the meringue so I simply spread it with a palette knife and used it to put texture on the pie. My only problem was I found it A little bit to sweet. ;)

This made a perfect lemon meringue pie. I do not have an electric mixer, so I simply hand whisked the butter into the dough and it worked just fine.
