Lemon Meringue Pie with Honey Meringue🍰🍋

If you’re searching for a special dessert, then this is it! And believe us when we say it’s worth it. We use our wildflower honey to sweeten the Swiss meringue in this classic pie—the perfect topping for the tangy lemon filling.
Lemon Meringue Pie with Honey Meringue
½ (14.1-ounce) refrigerated pie crusts
Edible flowers for garnish (optional)
For the Lemon Filling:
1½ cups water
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
½ cup fresh lemon juice
5 large egg yolks
3 tablespoons salted butter
1 tablespoon lemon zest
For the Honey Meringue:
5 large egg whites
½ teaspoon cream of tartar
¾ cup Wildflower Honey (Pick Up At Bonnes Amies Kitchen)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Unroll the pie crust and fit into a 9-inch pie plate. Fold the edges under and crimp. Place parchment paper over the crust and fill with pie weights or beans. Bake according to package directions. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Make the Lemon Filling: Bring the water, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice to a simmer in a medium saucepan and cook until thickened. Whisk the egg yolks in a medium bowl. Add a little of the hot water mixture to the egg yolks, whisking constantly. Gradually whisk in the remaining hot water mixture to the egg yolks. Pour the mixture into the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat for 1 minute. Stir in the butter and lemon zest. Transfer the filling to the pie crust and cover directly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate while making the meringue. Prepare a double boiler. Bring about an inch of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Combine the egg whites, cream of tartar, and honey in a medium bowl that fits into the saucepan without touching the water. Cook over the simmering water, whisking constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until the egg white mixture reaches 160°F. Transfer the mixture to a heavy-duty stand mixer. Add the vanilla and beat the mixture to stiff peaks.
Remove the pie from the refrigerator and top with the meringue, spreading all the way to the edges to seal the filling. Use a kitchen torch or oven broiler to toast the meringue. Cool the pie to room temperature or until ready to serve.
Garnish the pie with edible flowers.

Garden Saints

“So plant your own gardens and decorate your soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.” Jorge Luis Borges 
A garden should be cozy and inviting, a place where the fragrance of flowers, peace, and beauty should surround you. Our new prayer angels, Saint Francis & Saint Fiacre, sitting doves, rabbits, roosters, and sitting dog garden statues can enhance the beauty of your outdoor space and create a magical, almost surreal atmosphere. Each piece is a work of art made in the USA and can adorn your garden for many years to come! Lay Away Available.
“In 1911 Egisto traveled from Lucca, Italy to Chicago, Illinois where he founded his own statuary company. Because he took great pride in his craft and reputation, his castings soon set the industry standard of excellence. Artists, interior designers and museums relied upon the careful detailing and impeccable quality standards he demanded. 
Today his repertoire encompasses many collections including: Fiber Stone for the garden, Religious Statuary, Fountains, Columns and Pedestals. The factory and showroom is proudly located in Chicago where a staff of sculptors, artisans, mold-makers and casters handcraft unique designs and apply their talents to even the most custom order.
