Lemon Pie Parfaits – An Update of Grandma’s Lemon Meringue Pie
My grandma’s lemon meringue pie was astonishingly good. It is one of my very favorite food memories. As a small child, I hoped and prayed that my grandma would make it every single time I went to visit.
It was her signature dish, and her secret to the powerful lemony tang was kept under wraps until a few weeks ago, when my mom entrusted me with the secret. Here it is for all our Apron Strings friends: when Grandma made the lemon curd for the pie, she let the lemon rind simmer with the curd in the pan and then discarded it before spooning the curd into the pie shell.
