About

When I was growing up in the northwest corner of Washington state, the closest restaurant to our turn-of-the-century farmhouse was about 8 miles down the road, called The Farmhouse Restaurant. It was a laid back kind of place that served homey, feel good food. I can vividly remember the mountainous lemon meringue pies that were displayed in their rotating pie window. Those pies seemed to stretch a mile high!

This recipe for Mini Paleo Lemon Meringue Pies is a delicious, low-sugar way to enjoy the treat of a lemon meringue pie. It’s actually really easy to make, and turns out super cute and fun to serve on a pretty little tray. Enjoy!


Serves 12
For the Crust:

3 tablespoons coconut palm sugar

6 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

For the Lemon Cured:

4 egg yolks

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon Lemon Zest

6 tablespoons lemon juice

6 tablespoons coconut oil

For the Meringue:

4 egg whites

¼ tablespoon cream of tartar

¼ teaspoon Lemon Extract

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


Directions
1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the crust ingredients. Press into 12 mini muffin tins. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden. Reduce oven heat to 350 degrees.

2

Fill a medium pot with water, bring to boil over high heat. Place the egg yolks, maple syrup, lemon zest and lemon juice into a heatproof bowl, place over the pot and whisk constantly for 7-10 minutes until the curd thickens. Remove from heat and mix in the 6 Tablespoons of coconut oil.

Fill each mini crust with lemon curd.

Beat the meringue ingredients with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Place in a piping bag with a wide tip and cover each mini pie with a generous meringue topping.
