Can I get some easy lemon meringue pie recipes?
Mix milk, egg yolks, lemon juice and flavoring using a hand mixer. Pour into graham cracker pie crust.
Beat egg whites until they start to stiffen, gradually beat in sugar and cream of tartar. continue to beat with hand mixer at a medium high speed until soft peaks form. Pile onto pie filling and bake in a 400 degree F oven until meringue browns on top. remove from oven, cool and refrigerate. DELICIOSO! (03/12/2008)
Oh, that condensed milk, lemon juice one is a classic. The absolute favorite of my children, even though they're all adults now! (03/12/2008)
This one's really easy! I buy a ready made graham cracker crust and Shirriff Lemon pie Filling. Make the pie filling according to directions on the box, being careful to stir constantly and gently. Then I make this meringue from this recipe:
Beat the egg white at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. With mixer running add the cream of tartar, then gradually add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time and beat until soft peaks form.
Pile onto pie, seal at edges and bake at 350 degrees F for 12 to 15 min. or until lightly browned.
This is a real lemon Pie but is easy.
DELUXE LEMON MERINGUE PIE
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan. Whisk in water and lemon juice until smooth.
Beat egg yolks until thick and pale; stir into sugar mixture. Add butter; cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in lemon rind. Pour into pastry shell.
Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed with an electric mixer just until foamy. Add 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes). Beat in vanilla extract. Spread meringue over hot filling, sealing to edge of pastry shell.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until peaks are golden brown. Cool to room temperature. Garnish, if desired. Makes 1 (9-inch) pie.
Definitely the condensed milk recipe. You will find that the fresh lemon juice squeezed, tastes much nicer. Yum!
I used Pillsbury ready made pie crust and Mytfine Lemon Pie filling. I put the crust in the oven to bake and follow directions for pie filling and cook it in the microwave. That's done in 6-minutes. I think that is pretty fast. (03/13/2008)
