Lemon Pie Recipe by Cuisine l'Angélique.

A creamy and refreshing lemon pie!


TIP

* Favor the use of organic cornstarch.


VARIATION

Agar-agar alternative: replace sugar and cornstarch with 160 g (1/2 cup) maple syrup and 5 ml (1 tsp agar-agar powder). The mixture will thicken only as it cools. Wait for it to set before covering with meringue. .

The texture will be less creamy, but we also opt for this alternative at our house!
