Citrus Meringue Pie

Summer just SCREAMS citrus!
And, with the end of summer
only a few weeks away, I thought
what better time to pull this recipe out!

It's so rich
and tart...and simply fabulous!
Here's to my last stab 
at a summertime sweet!


Ingredients
Pie Crust
9 inch Deep Dish Store bought
-or-
your favorite homemade recipe
will work great!

Citrus Filling
Two 14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 cup Lime Juice
1/2 cup Lemon Juice
6 Eggs
Zest of both lemon and lime, to taste

Meringue
6 Eggs Whites
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cream of Tartar
Splash of Vanilla Extract

Method
For the filling:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Whisk condensed milk and juices together in a medium size bowl. Add eggs, one at the time, until combined. Zest citrus into mixture and stir in. Pour batter into pie crust and bake for 35-40 minutes. Let cool completely.

For the meringue:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Beat egg whites on low with the whisk attachment on a stand mixer. Once it starts to froth, slowly add in sugar, tartar and vanilla. Crank the mixer up to a medium speed. When it starts to thicken, turn all the way up to high and beat until stiff peaks form. {For perfect meringue tips, click HERE.}
Spoon meringue over cooled pie and bake for 18-22 minutes, until browned on top. Let cool on the counter and refrigerate over night.

Get ready to
pucker up
gurlfraaans!

This pie 
explodes
with cool and creamy
tart-someness!

{Ohhh, yeah! I just made that word up!}


Before you know it,
summer will be over...
and everyone will be making
pumpkin this and pecan that.

So, get inspired 
for one more round of crisp, 
summertime treats before 
autumn leaves start to fall!


Enjoy and Happy Baking!
