I have an adage when it comes to peaches: Travel to the peaches, don’t ask them to travel to you. And when they do arrive as close to home as you can find them, make this simple dessert of peaches topped with meringue.
Lemon Meringue Pie: A Family Favorite
My grandmother Mae was notorious for her sweet tooth. How she lived to 97 on a diet that included daily jelly donuts I have no idea.
She loved to bake and one of her favorite things to make for us was lemon meringue pie. I still remember the magic of that whipped meringue topping that went into the oven like soft cloudy pillows and came out firm and golden brown.
Colorful cupcakes and doughnuts have been popular for a while in both large and mini varieties, but now even meringues come in bite-size, colorful forms like unicorn poop meringues and meringue kisses. The light and crisp treats, which are made from whipped egg whites and sugar, take the smallest and most adorable form as meringue kisses. Naturally, bakers have been experimenting with this new trend, using meringue kisses as cake toppers, adding different flavors, and using a variety of colorful food dyes to create magical-looking treats.
