Orange Meringue Pie

A finished orange meringue pie.I know there's such a thing as lemon meringue pie, but the other day I had a bunch of oranges so I decided to do an orange meringue pie instead. I did two versions: one a normal version and one vegan. They both were excellent.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Put pie weights and bake crust in the preheated oven until edge of crust is golden, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the foil and weights. Bake about 5 minutes more.
  2. Baking the crust for an orange meringue pie.
  3. In small saucepan, stir together sugar, cornstarch and salt.

  5. Mix in the orange juice, lemon juice, and water.
  6. Whisk in the egg yolks.
  7. Cook this over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thick and bubbly, about 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from heat. Stir in butter, orange zest, and stir in diced orange segments.
  9. Pour the mix into the prepared pie crust. Cover it with plastic wrap, and set aside to cool.
  10. When the pie filling has cooled to room temperature, preheat the oven and prepare the meringue. Meringue is very complicated and can sometimes fail even when best precautions are taken. One problem with meringue is it can shrink, or weep. Some folks also add a tablespoon of vinegar. I will try that next time because mine did shrink. But for the sake of this recipe, preheat oven to 350 degrees F and beat egg whites until they're foamy. Gradually add in the 1/2 cup sugar and cream of tartar. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  11. Mixing the eggs for meringue.

  12. Spread this over pie, making sure that the meringue covers the filling completely and meets the edges of the pie crust.
  13. Bake in preheated oven until meringue topping is golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Looks delicious and I'd love to make one this weekend. You mentioned a vegan version but I don't see it. If love try that as well since eggs are illegal on Tuesdays and Fridays when people are hiding or sick. Fresh oranges are also sometimes banned, so I may use canned tangerine slices.
