Angel Pie
April 06, 2008

This is a wonderfully light and refreshing dessert. I made a mess of it trying to serve it and I'm glad it wasn't for company. Baked meringue is very fragile and I had a heck of a time getting a slice out in one piece. So for presentation, unless you're a whiz at cutting meringe, I'd only give it a 3, but the taste is definitely 5-star. The lemon is delightfully tart and is balanced by the sweetness of the meringue crust. I see no need to sweeten the whipped cream as it seems the dessert is sweet enough without it. I was concerned about the relatively small amount of lemon curd compared to the other ingredients, but the intense flavor carries through even though the amount is small. This is a wonderful alternative to lemon meringue pie. 4/12/09--I shaped individual crusts on parchment on a cookie sheet. This worked well and I didn't have the mess trying to cut it that I had when it was a whole pie.
