Instructions
 

  • Filling:
  • In a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat, add water, lemon juice, and butter until the butter is melted.
  • Whisk everything together.
  • Add a little of the lemon mixture to the egg yolks and blend to bring the eggs up to the temp. of the lemon mixture (temper the egg yolks).
  • Add egg yolks when tempered and whisk into the lemon mixture, stirring constantly.
  • Add xanthan gum and whisk to combine cook until mixture thickens.
  • Pour into a prebaked pie crust. You can use our pie crust recipe.
  • Make sure you always blind bake the pie first.
  • Meringue:
  • In a medium bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
  • Add powdered erythritol 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until peaks are stiff and glossy.
  • Spoon onto hot pie filling.
  • Spread over filling evenly, carefully sealing meringue to edge of crust to prevent shrinking or weeping. With the side of a rubber spatula create peaks on top of the meringue.
  • Bake at 325°F for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  • Let cool on the counter for 2 hours.
  • Then place in the fridge until serving.
  • It will set up more the longer it is in the fridge. I find it best the next day.

Notes

Nutrition includes the crust
We use granular erythritol and then just use a coffee grinder to powder it yourself.
