# Luscious angel pies consist of a crisp meringue shell and a creamy filling. A tart filling provides a pleasing contrast to the sweet meringue. The classic is lemon, but lime is a favorite too (Key Lime Angel Pie). Any creamy cooked custard will work (Pastry Cream), as will ice cream or whipped cream mixed with fresh fruit. # For individual meringue tart shells: Line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Using about 1/3 cup for each shell, spoon meringue onto sheets. Use back of spoon to build up edges to form rims. (Baking sheets can be lightly greased and floured; meringue can be piped from pastry bag.)

Recipe Ingredients for Piecrust - Meringue Pie Shell

3 EGG WHITES, room temperature
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Recipe Directions for Piecrust - Meringue Pie Shell

  1. # HEAT oven to 225F. BEAT egg whites and cream of tartar in mixer bowl with whisk attachment on high speed until foamy. Beating constantly, ADD sugar, 2 Tbsp. at a time, beating after each addition until sugar is dissolved before adding the next. (Rub a bit of meringue between thumb and forefinger; it should feel completely smooth.) Continue beating until whites are glossy and stand in Stiff Peaks. BEAT IN vanilla.

  2. # SPREAD meringue on bottom and sides of greased 9-inch pie plate with back of spoon, building up edge to form a rim.

  3. # BAKE in 225F oven until firm and wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Turn off oven. LET DRY in oven, with door closed, until cool and crisp, at least 1 hour. STORE, in pie plate, in tightly sealed container at room temperature. FILL just before serving.
