REAL Southern Lemon Meringue Pie

There are a few recipes every good southern girl should have in her repertoire.  A southern girl should know how to make biscuits, fry a chicken, make a perfect glass of sweet tea, and of course, know how to whip up some lemon meringue pie.  Now, with that said, I cook all the time, perfecting my own skills and having a good time while doing so. And, while I’ve made several pies…lemon meringue was not one of them. It was, however, on my list of things to learn to do. And I’m happy to report, it was totally painless.

In fact, I had a lot of fun making this pie and my kids have been drooling waiting for it to chill. It is a yummy looking pie. And, now it s the perfect time to experiment if you’ve never made this pie either.  It happens to be time for Walmart’s citrus event. Every year at this time they bring in lots of seasonal citrus – oranges, honey belles, mandarins, limes, grapefruits, lemons, pumelos, and lot of other tasty citrus – some you’ve tried and maybe a few you’ve never seen.

Citrus Event at Walmart

At our last shopping trip we picked up some honey belles to try {they tasted like a REALLY sweet tangerine}, some lemons {I can’t resist stocking up during this season – we LOVE fresh squeezed lemonade}, and some mandarins, or halos as they are calling them on television these days – my kids can’t get enough of them!  And of course, like all of Walmart’s other produce, they offer the 100% freshness guarantee – if you’re not completely satisfied with their produce, just bring back your receipt and they’ll give you a full refund no questions asked and no need to bring back the purchase.

So, back to that lemon meringue pie…it was actually a bit easier then I had envisioned. Of course, to make it even more simple you can purchase a good pie crust from the grocery store – or make it totally homemade by making your own pie crust.

  1. I am trying to limit my sugar. Would this work with stevia in the raw or would it work with a 50/50 mix of stevia and real sugar?
