Daring Baker's Challenge: Lemon Meringue Pie






I wish I could runaway like my lemon curd ran. This month's Daring Baker's Challenge was hosted by Jen from The Canadian Baker . Lemon Meringue Pie, a first for me. I was a little apprehensive about the meringue. These days egg whites scare me. After a failed flourless chocolate cake earlier this month I bake in fear of collapsed egg whites. While my meringue was not as stiff as maybe it should have been, it really did turn out nice. The crust was simply and delicious, mine was nice and thick, my favorite. Usually I'm a huge fan of curd...but like a lot of other DBers mine ran. The taste was great, but too soupy. It's okay though, I'm glad I completed my third challenge and in the future will make some changes so my lemon curd may stay.

My filling didn't set properly either. Still, your pie looks gorgeous!

Aww, bummer about the curd. Your meringue came out fabulously though! Good job on seeing it through.
