National Lemon Meringue Pie Day

Pie enthusiasts and lemon lovers alike will celebrate National Lemon Meringue Pie Day on August 15th. In this delectable tart, tart lemon curd and delicate meringue blend together.


The crust is usually made with a shortbread pastry when making a lemon meringue pie. Lemon curd is the pie's filling. Of course, the topping is a fluffy and crisp meringue.

To make a meringue, Whip egg whites to stiff peaks. To make it sweet, add sugar to make it sweet. Meringues are baked in a slow oven so when they're finished, they come out crisp and golden.

Since meringue is versatile, it can be made into individual servings with fruit fillings. Pastry chefs also like to make meringue cookies. The light, airy cookies melt in your mouth whether you add cocoa, coffee, or any combination of flavorings. The same is true of meringue pies.

In the 17th century, the meringue was mastered. Meanwhile, lemon meringue pie as we know it today was invented in the 19th century.
