Monday August 15, 2016 is Lemon Meringue Pie Day.

Lemon meringue pie is one of the most famous lemon desserts. In fact, lemon meringue pie is one of the most popular pies in Great Britain and America, along with other classics such as apple, pumpkin and pecan pie.

There is obviously no way to enjoy this day more than to have some lemon meringue pie. And why settle for the sugary, store-bought version? If you like to cook or are up for a little challenge, try making your own! The trick to making a good meringue is using well-beaten egg whites.

A delicious Lemon Meringue Pie recipe that will have your dinner guests talking for hours:

1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups water
2 lemons, juiced and zested
2 tablespoons butter
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
4 egg whites
6 tablespoons white sugar
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium saucepan, whisk together 1 cup sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture comes to a boil. Stir in butter. Place egg yolks in a small bowl and gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of hot sugar mixture. Whisk egg yolk mixture back into remaining sugar mixture. Bring to a boil and continue to cook while stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat. Pour filling into the baked pastry shell. In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy. Add sugar gradually, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form, then stop immediately (overbeaten eggs are just as bad as underbeaten eggs). Spread the meringue over the pie, sealing the edges at the crust. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until meringue is golden brown. Let cool … then, dig in. ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/m70E8
