HOW TO MAKE LEMON MERINGUE PIE: THE ESSENTIALS
To make a successful lemon meringue pie recipe, you first need to make a good flaky pie dough that cuts easily and crumbles in the mouth.
The second element of a successful lemon meringue pie is, of course, the lemon cream which must be quite balanced, neither too sweet nor too acid and, above all, creamy. For this, we use a freshly squeezed lemon juice and prepare the cream in a bain-marie.
Finally, the third aspect of a good lemon meringue pie recipe is the meringue. Some people prefer their lemon pie without meringue, but this mixture of egg whites and sugar brings a little sweetness and perfectly balances the acidity of the lemon.
