Even if my granny’s lemon pie remains my favourite, I have discovered a new lemon meringue pie recipe that is really nice for a change. Here are 3 reasons why this is an amazing lemon meringue pie recipe:
First the base is made with crushed Graham crackers mixed with butter and cinnamon, using the same recipe as the cheesecake base. It is much easier to make than a short pastry, and on top of that it is very crunchy and tastes delicious!!!
Now let’s talk about the filling’s ingredients: eggs, lemon zest and juice… until now this is pretty much normal. And here are the wow ingredients: condensed milk and vanilla ice cream!!! I had to read the recipe twice to be sure I wasn’t just hallucinating for the ice cream.
And finally the pie is topped with a gigantic layer of meringue. I actually did a meringue for the first time for this pie. Meringues always impressed me because I thought it was very complicated to make, but it is actually easy. Here is a little video to see the technique, I hope it will convince you to try:
So let’s start with this great lemon meringue pie recipe!!
