Lemon Meringue PIe-Dutch Oven Style

Earlier this morning, I decided I wanted to challenge myself to make a lemon meringue pie in my dutch oven .
   How hard could it be??  I baked the pie crust in the dutch oven, made the filling indoors (it was just too hot outdoors to do that) and then I browned the meringue in the dutch oven--I am sooo thrilled with the results-and it tastes super delicious too.  Had to share with you all.

First two photos getting set up  (all photos will enlarge just click on them)

Pecan nut pie crust baking

 Crust baked and ready

Homemade lemon pie filling added

Meringue and lemon zest added on top

I baked this just til the meringue got browned-coals on top none on bottom

This was actually one of my best meringues I will be doing this again soon. we had a small piece with lunch-soooo delicious I can't even describe it 


  1. Does a smoked flavor add something, or doesn't it have that? Lemon Meringue is my favorite pie!

  2. This looks SO, SO delicious. I also love lemon meringue pie. Oh gosh, I LOVE any meringue pie. Yours looks perfectly done, too. So glad you shared it with us.

  3. Oh my word, Kathy! Your lemon meringue pie looks fabulous. It actually looks better than some I've done in my kitchen.
    Have a great week!

  4. Fascinating. I never thought of making a pie in a Dutch oven like that. It looks delicious and you made a good pick for a hot summer day. :) Hugs-Erika

  5. oh my goodness...I've never seen this done before! looks scrumptious and came out perfect!

  6. I love everything lemony and your pie looks so delicious!

  7. Oh wow... that is AMAZING - I want to taste this heavenly pie!

  8. so sorry- I about missed this post so thanks for sending me the link in an email:) Very interesting and it loos SO yummy! And this post answered a ? I sent you about whether or not the dutch oven was cast iron. Happy belated T day!

  9. Hi Kathy, I think you are right and I shouldn't keep the fruit for more than a day - two at most! It seemed to keep on giving flavour though, maybe I should use smaller pieces. I have never used a Dutch oven, looks interesting and the pie looks yummy. Happy Belated T day. Cazzyx
