Pretty. meringue GF!

I checked my Meyer shrub the other day and it looks like another number crop of over a thousand (we harvest in Nov -Dec)
I will gladly set you up if the fruit can cross state lines!

oh, and the meringue was fun, but I was so nervous, that was the first time I tried something like that... I spread out maybe 1/3 of the meringue to seal the filling and then I used a Wilton 1M tip with the rest, s'okay right?  I really could have gotten the meringue a bit stiffer though, I think... the peaks weren't as 'perfect' as I would have liked.... but then that's why you practice on your family /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif  HA!

The real giveaway between LM home and LM store bought is that store bought has no imperfections.

Just pie after pie ....all looking the same ......./img/vbsmilies/smilies/smiles.gif

I will let you know when they are ready (lemons) and maybe we can meet up halfway!

I love RTs.....

@flipflopgirl  sure girl friend, I've got that here somewhere, oh yeah, I wrote an article here at CT : 

http://www.cheftalk.com/a/meyer-lemon-curd

http://www.cheftalk.com/g/a/165811/meyer-lemon-curd#


I used the last of the curd that I stashed away in the deep freeze for this pie, 

as well as the whites that I had reserved and froze.

I also made a pie utilizing the powered egg whites


but I didn't care for the meringue nearly as much as I did using

the fresh whites.

Did my own creation last night.  Banana Bread Foster.  Forgot to take pics.

Thick chunk of banana bread topped with some carmel from the banana's foster, surrounded by banana's foster, topped with vanilla ice cream, topped with more of the carmel.   It's a big hit around here.

I had about 1/3 of the Pate Brisee recipe that I made for the

Meyer Lemon Meringue leftover in the freezer and 3 large

Apples on the counter that were going soft.

Not wanting to waste food, I diced up the Apples, tossed

them in sugar, cinnamon and corn starch... rolled the pie

dough out on the thick-ish side, piled the Apples in the

center of the crust and folded up the sides to form a

crostata. 

That was the longest hour in my husband's afternoon, poor thing, 

but he was rewarded.  He said, "I can't stop smacking my lips".

I was looking for something sweet the other night after dinner

and I had some Apple Bread in the deep freeze, Hmmm...

I warmed it up a touch in the micro and gave it a good

squirt of Reddi-Wip[emoji]174[/emoji] along with a sprinkle of ground Cinnamon

and boy-howdy-doody let me tell you boys and girls

that was GOOD!
