L is for Lemon

L is for Lemon

"Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat."

Not so Peter, Paul, and Mary.  
Have you tried my lemon meringue pie?

My favorite recipe for Lemon Meringue Pie 
 is from JOY OF COOKING, Scribner, 1997.

Lemon desserts are the 
perfect choice for hot summer days.

Use your favorite lemon pie recipe to 
make individual lemon tartlets.

You can top them with berries instead 
of the meringue for a bit of summer color.

Or fill pâte á choux puffs 
for a tasty lemon cream puff.

Then sit back with a cool drink 
and enjoy the fruits of a lemon tree.

So when you find yourself 
with a bowl of fresh lemons or limes . . .

Make a pie!

~ A Lemon Meringue Pie ~
Make it with a "mile high" meringue like I do.
Just double the egg whites!
Pretty vintage hankies for napkins   
and served on MacKenzie-Childs' ceramics.
Ahhh, a refreshing summer treat!
