Searching for Lemon Meringue

My mom only has one request for her birthday every year, and that is to have Lemon Meringue Pie.  She typically runs out and just gets a frozen Lemon Meringue Pie, but this year my dad had other ideas.  For her birthday present he was going to get her a freshly baked pie.

This decision of his ended up being a little more demanding then he thought, as he found himself calling five bakeries in our area before finding one who had the curd all prepared to bake his covented pie.  He ended up getting a delicious Lemon Meringue Pie from Touche Touchet Bakery in Columbia, MD.

My personal least favorite part of Lemon Meringue Pie is all the meringue.  It’s too foamy, too bland, and I just want to get through it to get to the lemon curd!  Touche Touchet’s Lemon Meringue Pie had a thin layer – and in my mind a perfect layer – of meringue that equaled the amount of lemon curd.

Our only real complaint was a thin layer of sugar that was sprinkled over the meringue, which made the texture a bit gritty.  But, we’re simple people who love Lemon Meringue, so that wasn’t going to stop us from enjoying one of the best Pies we’ve had in a while.

Touche Touchet’s website also boasted that they were voted best bakery in Howard County Magazine in 2007 and 2008.  While maybe not the biggest title to boast about in the world of dining, it’s enough to sell me on the place!


Couldn’t find a Lemon Meringue Pie on their website, so figured a Key Lime Pie would do!
