Watch Us Make: Buttermilk Lemon Meringue PieEverything is better with a few inches of fluffy toasted meringue.


Sink your fork into this Buttermilk Lemon Meringue Pie, and you'll meet three luscious layers: a buttery graham cracker crust, thick lemon-y filling and a heap of toasted meringue fluff. In short: a pie that perfectly balances tart and sweet. The secret to its refreshing flavor? A mixture of fresh lemon and tangy buttermilk.

Because the pie is made with a quick pressed graham cracker crust, it's an easy one to put together before a get-together, but the meringue topping makes it look fancy. Whether you're making the pie for a potluck, celebration or Sunday dessert, there's little hope of leftovers. Creator Ellen Riley of Murfreesboro, Tennessee boasts, "The compliments roll whenever I serve it."
