Lemon Meringue Pie

15 August 2015 by Hazel

Lemon meringue pie, tarte au citron meringuée, citron-marengs-kage, whatever you want to call it, it's a difficult one to get right, and there aren't many in Copenhagen, so we made it our mission to hunt down the best.

Bertel

A perfect lemon meringue pie with a firm but soft (definitely not crumbly) pastry base, a soft-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside meringue, and a tangy lemon filling that is not SO tangy that it overpowers the taste of the meringue, to be found at @bertelssalon.

Brødflov

@thehazertazer stopped by Brødflov to taste this beauty, and was not disappointed! The extra layer of chocolate is a dream!

Look at this beauty! Unsurprisingly, the French make a wonderful Lemon Meringue Pie, or as they call it at @voulezvouscafe, tarte au citron meringuée.

When Atelier September do lemon meringue pie, they do it very well indeed! Photographed and guzzled up by @asbjornseverin.

Sweet Treat

@kaffebarensweettreat is winning top points on the tangy lemon filling - peeeeerrrrfection! And they make a mean cappuccino to accompany your slice of pie.

Gabi and Jakob of @leckerbaer do a mini Lemon Meringue Pie, and naturally we went and made a GIF out of it!

Det Rene Brød

You have to buy a whole pie (shame), but they come in large and small and according to @thehazertazer, they're damn good!
