The History of Lemon Meringue Pie

The origins of Lemon Meringue Pie can be traced back to the early 19th century. This delightful dessert has become a staple in many households and is often enjoyed during special occasions. The pie consists of three main components: the crust, the filling, and the meringue topping.

Our gluten-free crust is carefully crafted to achieve the perfect balance of texture and flavor. Made from a blend of gluten-free flours and a hint of butter, it provides a delicate base that complements the luscious lemon filling.

The filling is the star of the show, boasting a vibrant burst of tangy lemon flavor. Our secret recipe combines fresh lemon juice, zest, and a touch of sweetness to create a harmony that will leave you craving for more. Each bite is a symphony of citrusy goodness.

Now, let's talk about the pièce de résistance - the meringue topping. Light as air and delicately sweet, it adds a heavenly touch to the pie. We whip our meringue to perfection, achieving a cloud-like texture that beautifully contrasts with the tanginess of the lemon filling.

  • For the crust:
  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free flour blend
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 3 tablespoons ice-cold water
  • For the filling:
  • 4 large lemons
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • For the meringue:
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a 9-inch pie dish.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the gluten-free flour blend and cubed butter. Use a fork or pastry cutter to cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add the ice-cold water to the mixture and gently combine until the dough comes together. Shape it into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll out the chilled dough on a lightly floured surface and carefully transfer it to the prepared pie dish. Trim any excess dough and flute the edges.
  5. In a saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and water for the filling. Stir in the lemon juice and zest. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Gradually add a spoonful of the hot lemon mixture to the yolks, whisking constantly. This helps to temper the yolks and prevents curdling.
  7. Return the egg yolk mixture to the saucepan and continue cooking until thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  8. To make the meringue, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until foamy. Gradually add the sugar, one spoonful at a time, until stiff peaks form.
  9. Pour the lemon filling into the prepared pie crust. Top it with the meringue, spreading it evenly to the edges.
  10. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the meringue is lightly golden. Allow the pie to cool completely before serving.
