Mmmm Lemon Meringue Pie! I always liked the sound of it and the look of it, but because there is no chocolate on it or in it I would never choose it from a desert menu. And so I never actually had a slice during my twenty something years on this earth. That was until April 29th 2011. Yes I remember that date for being the day I had my first slice of Lemon Meringue Pie. There was also a wedding going on that day too.
Okay I was very excited about the Royal wedding. I am not ashamed to say I love Prince William, well maybe loved is more appropriate. Past tense. I now love my husband way more! I do think he's lovely though! And the Royal wedding is actually what led to the lemon meringue tasting. You see I decided to have a little tea/wedding-watching party and I bought some scones and stuff from Superquinn and thought I was all set. Then my lovely friend Emma arrived with her own homemade fresh out of the oven Lemon Meringue Pie! Talk about showing me up!! Anyway it was delicious! We all loved it, and ever since then I have been dreaming about having some more of it.
So after begging her for the recipe a few times I got a lovely email with it attached! Yes! And it didn't take me too long to get round to making it. I must admit, with three separate parts to it I was thinking it may be too much for me to handle. But Emma's instructions were very clear. So I printed them out and set about making my first ever Lemon Meringue Pie!
Here in Emma's own words are her instructions - she's very precise!
I was able to follow them, so you should be fine! (I did make a few little errors so I have put my comments in blue so you don't make my little mistakes!)
