Raspberry Lemon Meringue Pie

Raspberry Lemon Meringue Pie


"Added additional lemon and raspberries to this classic and delicious lemon meringue pie, giving it a less-sweet and brighter flavor. Sometimes I don't make the meringue, I just cool the lemon filling for 3 hours and garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and a raspberry at serving time."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Press pie crust into a 9-inch pie pan. Brush crust with enough egg white to coat with a thin layer.
  2. Cook in the preheated oven until golden brown, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove crust from oven and cool. Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Cook and stir raspberries in a saucepan over medium heat until raspberries start to break down, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir 1 tablespoon cornstarch into raspberries until cornstarch is dissolved and mixture is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Spoon raspberry mixture into pie crust.
  4. Combine 1 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup cornstarch in a saucepan; gradually stir in water and 1/2 cup lemon juice until smooth. Stir egg yolks into sugar mixture; bring to a boil. Cook sugar-egg mixture at a boil, stirring constantly, until smooth, about 1 minute. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir lemon pulp, remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice, and butter into sugar-egg mixture; pour over raspberry mixture.
  5. Beat 3 egg whites in a small bowl using an electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Gradually beat 1/3 cup white sugar into egg whites until stiff peaks form. Spread egg white mixture over lemon filling, completely sealing egg mixture onto edges of crust.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until meringue is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool pie to room temperature on a wire rack, about 30 minutes. Refrigerate pie until completely chilled, about 3 hours.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Margarine can be substituted for the butter.
  • Blackberries or mixed berries can be substituted for the raspberries.
  • You can also make 5 mini pies using mini graham cracker crusts if desired.
  • Argo(R) or Kingsford's(R) cornstarch are recommended.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I added some water to the raspberries but the pie was amazing.

Very good . Yes i would make it again but less sugar in something. And i would make the lemon curd much differently by using a double boiler . Also more than a half cup of raspberries.

I have made this a few times. The first time, I added more raspberries. The second time, I doubled the raspberries, and that was a bit too much. I will stick to a bit more rather than doubling.

I would never go back to a regular lemon meringue pie! I added water to the raspberries and next time I would add more butter and cornstarch to the lemon but otherwise, this is amazing. And th...
