A Luscious Lemon Meringue Pie to Celebrate Summer

August 28, 2012

Nothing says “summer” to me quite like the taste of lemons and this one was divine after a long hot day …

Perhaps it is the book title alone that speaks to me  – Handheld Pies: Dozens of Pint-Sized Sweets and Savories by Rachel Wharton & Sarah Billingsley/Photography by Ellen Silverman – anything that suggests it is made by hand deserves at least a few minutes of my attention. Or, maybe it is the fact that the pies are made in darling, individual serving sizes – the lemon meringue pie was made in glass jars.  (I actually used individual Pyrex bakers that I picked up at a garage sale.) The single servings should have been enough, although my husband and I split another one just in case it wouldn’t keep well till the next day.

With another week of 85 degree plus days ahead, I may just need to make these one more time before summer’s end! Happy sewing – and baking!
