Classic Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe

Instructions: Prepare the Crust: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line the crust with parchment paper or aluminum foil and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15-20 minutes, then remove the weights and parchment paper and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.

Prepare the Filling: In a small bowl, beat the egg yolks. Gradually whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot mixture into the egg yolks to temper them, then whisk the egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan.

Assemble the Pie: Spread the meringue over the lemon filling, sealing the edges to the crust to prevent shrinking. Use a spatula to create peaks and swirls in the meringue.

Bake:  Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the pie for 10-12 minutes, or until the meringue is golden brown.

Cool Allow the pie to cool completely on a wire rack before serving. This helps the filling set and makes slicing easier.

Serving: Serve the blackberry pie warm or at room temperature, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream. Enjoy!
