“When life give you lemons, make lemon meringue pie!”
My dad grew up working the summers in his uncle’s bakery. The love of sweets was definitely passed on to all of us, especially pies. I have fond memories of my dad trying to get the meringue to set up and almost always it was several minutes of him sweating it out in the kitchen.
In the end it really didn’t matter to us if the meringue was perfect, it was the gathering around the kitchen counter together that made there moments so special as a family. He would have been amazed by Ginger and Baker’s Lemon Meringue Pie. It’s true beauty is on the inside just like my dad’s pie, however the outside is a masterpiece!Back to Pie Stories
