Lemon Meringue Pie Bars
Lemon Meringue Pie Bars

"Lemon meringue pie bars are bursting with the citrusy sweet flavor of spring and summer! Tangy and sweet, these lemon meringue pie bars start with a homemade lemon curd topped with pillowy meringue. All the amazingness of lemon meringue pie, but in bar form. These pie bars are perfect for parties or the holidays! You’ll get more servings out of these lemon meringue pie bars than you would with a traditional pie, making it great for larger get-togethers. "


Preparation Time1 hr 30 min

Cooking Vessel SizeStandard Mixer, saucepan, Rubber Spatula, 8x8 baking pan


  • 1 Pie Crust
  • 1 cup Cornstarch
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • Zest of one Lemon
  • 1 cup Lemon Juice
  • 4 Egg Yolks
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Egg Whites
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Using an 8×8 inch pan, roll out the pie crust and cut to fit the bottom of the dish. Cut to be slightly bigger than the bottom since it will shrink as it cooks. Spray the 8×8 pan with non-stick spray and lay the pie crust dough into the bottom.

  2. Into a 2 quart saucepan add the cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Give a quick whisk. Whisk the warm water, lemon juice, and zest into the saucepan. Turn the burner on medium-low. Stir until the mixture begins to boil. Remove from the heat.
