National Lemon Meringue Pie Day

National Lemon Meringue Pie Day on August 15th gives pie lovers and lemon lovers a chance to celebrate.  Tart lemon curd and delicate meringue sing together in this deliously bright pie.  When making a lemon meringue pie, the crust is usually made with a shortbread pastry.  The filling for the pie is lemon curd.  Of course, the topping is a fluffy and crisp meringue.  Whip egg whites to stiff peaks to make a meringue.  Add sugar to make it sweet.  Meringues are baked in a slow oven so when they are finished, they come out crisp and golden.
