Lemon meringue pie is a favorite among pie lovers because of the tangy lemon curd filling and the creamy meringue topping. This Grandmother’s lemon meringue pie recipe includes everything you would want from this easy lemon dessert, including the light golden hue on the meringue and the creamy lemon curd, filling. If you are discouraged to try pie recipes because of the challenges of making pie crust, this version uses a pre-baked pastry shell for easy preparation. The shell can be one that you have prepared from your favorite crust recipe or one you have purchased from the grocery store. Part of what puts the lemon in this lemon dessert is the substantial use of lemon juice and lemon zest. The juice adds acidic tanginess to the filling, while the oils from the lemon zest add the floral scent the one attributes with lemon curd. The yolks are integral to thickening the curd mixture and giving it its signature yellow hue.
