How to Make Gluten-Free Lemon Meringue Pie


We’ll be making a gluten-free and dairy-free version of this pie, and you’llneed 3 main elements:(1) the crust (2) the lemon curd (3) the meringue

Notes


Pie Crust Notes: * Pie Crust: I’ve included instructions for how to make our favorite gluten-free and dairy-free pie crust, but you can use any pie crust recipe you prefer. For convenience, you can also use a store-bought pie crust (in that case, it make the whole process easier and quicker). * All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour: I recommend using a good quality all-purpose gluten-free flour blend that is made up of a mix of lighter flours/starches (such as rice flour, corn starch, tapioca starch) and that includes xanthan gum). I do NOT recommend using a gluten-free blend that uses heavier flours such as garbanzo bean flour as that will result in a denser final texture. * Coconut Oil: I like using refined coconut oil which has a neutral taste (as opposed to extra virgin coconut oil which has a more pronounced coconut flavor and smell). Alternatively, if you are not lactose-intolerant, feel free to use butter in equal quantities instead.Lemon Curd Notes: * Lemon Curd Recipe: The lemon curd recipe I’ve used is simply double the quantity of our favorite microwave lemon curd. In the case that you don’t have a microwave, you can also make the lemon curd on the stovetop. To make it on the stovetop, stir the eggs, sugar, and lemon zest in a small pot. Heat the mixture over low heat until well-combined before adding in lemon juice and coconut oil and mixing well. Make sure to whisk the mixture constantly until it thickens (approximately 5 to 10 minutes). Do not get distracted as that can make the difference between a smooth curd or an eggy mess. Once curd is ready, remove from the stovetop and strain it through a fine-mesh sieve to get rid of any lemon zest. * Coconut Oil: I like using refined coconut oil which has a neutral taste (as opposed to extra virgin coconut oil which has a more pronounced coconut flavor and smell). Alternatively, if you are not lactose-intolerant, feel free to use butter in equal quantities instead. * Strain the Curd: While straining the lemon curd through a fine-mesh strainer requires a small extra step, it is definitely a step that will ensure you get a smooth and creamy curd without any extra bits of lemon zest.Meringue Notes: * The meringue recipe I’ve included makes an Italian meringue, which includes more steps than the more commonly used French meringue (which only requires you to beat egg whites with sugar until stiff peaks form, but is much less stable) because you have to make a syrup, but will ensure you get a firmer and more durable meringue that doesn’t weep or lose its shape after one day.
