Teeny's When Life Hands You Lemons-Meringue Pie

Hey everyone have you heard Teeny's back in town! Michael Lee West (hostess of Foodie Friday) has just published book number two about a self-taught pastry chef that keeps finding herself in all kinds of trouble. Last year she found her fiance cheating on her, then was a suspect in his murder, fell in love with her Mr. Right (who I still feel should be played by Matthew McConaughey:@), and we were left with a preview that she's about to meet a little girl claiming to be his daughter...

I can't wait to see what Teeny's cooking up this time, no doubt this pie will fit well with the story line!
When Life Hands You Lemons-Meringue Pie

This is my first meringue pie!

Teeny's When Life Hands You Lemons-Meringue Pie
1 (14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 C fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
3 egg yolks
1 (8 inch) pre-baked pie shell-I used a store bought graham cracker crust

3 egg whites-I used 4 because, um, more is better:@)
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 C sugar
  1. In medium bowl mix condensed milk, lemon juice, zest and yolks, pour into cooled pie shell.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  3. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. 
  4. Gradually add sugar and beat until stiff.
  5. Spread over filling and seal to edge of crust.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until meringue is golden brown.
  7. Cool and refrigerate till ready to serve.
Please note: While I'm having fun with Teeny today, this is actually a Paula Deen recipe I found on FoodNetwork.comClick to see my Teeny posts from last year: Peach Martini and Bacon Potato Frittata.

Have a happy day:@)

  2. Your pie turned out beautifully. I could eat the entire pie I am sure. When I am sick I want sugar and more sugar.

  3. This looks so good! I remember the first time I saw a lemon meringue pie in my mom's fridge. I just couldn't help but pick off the little browned peaks...not sure if she ever noticed a few missing. ; )

  4. Just a beauty!! The meringue has so many peaks. I haven't had a piece lemon meringue pie in such a long time.

  5. Oh my goodness, the lemon creme pie yogurt I had for lunch was nothing like this pie, I'm certain!
