Today is my mother's birthday. I asked her what dessert she wanted me to make and she did not hesitate to say that she wanted a Lemon Pie.

Now, this is not the first lemon pie that I bake for my mother as she always chooses this over anything else. However, this time, I have decided to make it from scratch. Yes, I admit I have always bought the mix and made it on a pre-made pie crust. The Swiss meringue was a bit tricky to make but it turned out perfectly!

Apparently this is the best pie that my family has ever eaten. I, however, don't like lemon pie at all so I had a sliver but couldn't handle the lemon. Too much lemon kills me :(
The shortbread crust was awesome though!

Also, I don't understand how to work this camera at all, lol. Sorry for the pictures lately :(

There's not much to say for me though. This pie looks absolutely divine! There is nothing more that I love about my desserts is that it should be sour and sweet. Not too sweet that I'de die of diabetes :D

Vision: I love how it looks. The meringue looks nice. Slightly browned and I feel it's fluffy too..

Originality: Simply put it as key lime pie. But pretty much that's it. I just love lemons more than lime. I want the zesty approach of the lemon than the sourness of the lime.

Technique: I've seen one and seen it all but relatively looks clean. It's not as messy as how I would look at tarts or pies. I made pies that doesn't looked this nice at all. This one really kicks it :)

Impact: Sooo craving for that particular pie now. Zesty lemon sourness and the sweetness from the meringue's. I think any meringue would work on this pie as long as it's pipe-able.

I love your pie and how it looks like so generally I'd give out a full 5 for these kinds of stuff but you missed out .5 on me for originality since I've seen a similar pie that's sold here in my country but it's baby limes or calamansi I think? Forgot the english term for calamansi.

Keep cooking, keep doing what your doing and always present with passion! :)

This is one of my favourite pies! I usually do it for my b-day, it's so yummy and honestly it's easy enough for a delicious result :)!
I do find too much lemon overkill too, so I usually just put an "hint" of it.

You're welcome :)
I'm not either, usually, but I have a special exception for lemon meringue pie! :D

aww that's weird I guess. Since lemon meringue pie is pretty much an explosion of lemon in your mouth! LOL :)
