Meringue is made from egg whites similar to pavlova. Recipes can be large and filled, used on the top of other ingredients or small bite size versions.
These are the most elemental meringue only combining egg whites and sugar yet they make a great sweet treat or garnish to a larger dessert.
This is a fun recipe to follow, because Grandma makes it sweet and simple. This pie is thickened with cornflour in addition to egg yolks and contains no milk. Watch this recipe being made in the Allrecipes Lemon Meringue Pie Video.
I was so pleased to discover that my wonderful Lemon Meringue Pie recipe that took years to perfect is just as good, if not better, when made lactose and gluten free! For the intolerant among us enjoy this delicious dessert... It's best served cold the next day but I often can't wait and love a slice when it's still warm and fresh out of the oven... ENJOY!
Meringue can be tricky and the results uncertain. If this is your experience, you have to try this recipe. It may seem a little more work but it is worth it for the result!
This old favourite contrasts the sweetness of meringue with the tartness of lemons. The pie is delicious served warm or cold.
