Rhubarb Meringue Pie

Oh please, you should have been able to see this coming. Leftover rhubarb curd sitting around? Nothing else makes sense.

I must admit, I have not made lemon meringue pie since my college days. It’s not that I don’t love lemon meringue pie…in fact if lemon meringue pie were a person, and my tummy were a person, my tummy would want to be best friends with lemon meringue pie, and give him a really really big hug.

I haven’t even eaten lemon meringue pie in a while either. I came pretty close a few months back in New York City…but alas, there was no lemon meringue pie to be found at midnight on a weekday; not any worth eating, anyway.

There’s not much to say here…

I made a crust using the dough from those yummy pop tarts you may remember…

I blind baked it in a springform pan (make sure you fork the bottom. I forgot until halfway through…dum dum)

Whipped some egg whites and made a meringue (no big deal)

Topped the curd with fluffy meringue goodness and popped it in the oven!

Yum, yum… in my tum.

Yep….I totally just said that.

You will too though. Guaranteed.

Rhubarb Meringue Pie

1 recipe pop tart dough for the crust

1 recipe rhubarb curd (ok ok I lied…I had to make some more curd to make a pie this big. But it doesn’t stop you from making little mini pies in a muffin pan)

Meringue:

6 egg whites

3 tbsp sugar

a pinch of salt

Roll out the dough and press into a springform pan (or a muffin pan) Bake at 350F until light golden brown. Cool completely.

Pour curd into the crust and chill while making the meringue.

For the meringue, whip egg whites with salt until frothy, then slowly incorporate the sugar until it forms stiff peaks.

Top the curd with the meringue and bake at 350F until it browns.

    When I have my own home/just a patch of ground…I’m planting rhubarb. My favourite is stewed rhubarb on ice cream….but this MUST be given a try sometime.
