With little more than a handful of eggs, cream, sugar, and a lemon, you have what it takes to make this amazing Lemon Angel Pie. I can not get over how simple and how fantastic this pie is. When I first saw this pie on my friend Leigh Anne’s blog, I knew that I needed to make it. With a name like “Lemon Angel” and those creamy cold lemony layers, this was a guaranteed win with my family.
My favorite pie for as long as I can remember has been a Lemon Meringue Pie. While that will forever hold a special place in my heart, (thanks for all the years you’ve made that one for me, Mom!) Lemon Angel Pie? This officially and beyond a doubt trumps the classic lemon meringue pie.
This pie may never be a beauty queen, but it is the most memorable pie I have ever made. Not one person has failed to sigh and smile as they take that first bite! The meringue crust is simply the airiest, lightest, slightly crunchy crust you can imagine. I adore it. The layers here are lighter, fluffier, and creamier than a classic lemon meringue pie could ever hope to be.
I’ve teased you with this pie on Snapchat for weeks now. I keep making it, because I can not get enough of it. I have fallen in love with this crazy easy meringue crust and I already have plans for more angel pies all summer long!
The meringue crust is so EASY to make, please don’t be intimidated! I even snapped a few pictures for you. Basically, you whip the eggs until they are fluffy, add sugar, stir, and scoop it into the pie pan. Way less than 10 minutes start to finish and you’ll have a perfect meringue crust headed into the oven.
