Making A Strawberry Angel Pie

Updated on September 18, 2014

How To Make A Strawberry Angel Pie

An Angel Pie is a dainty dessert made with a crisp, tender meringue shell and creamy filling. A whipped cream topping and fruit garnish are often added. Angel pie is usually made in an 8- or 9-inch size.

Numerous fillings are possible for the meringue shell. Cream fillings such as lemon, orange, and strawberry are commonly used. Fold fruit into a cream filling or just use sweetened fresh fruit in the meringue shell. Ice cream balls may be piled into the shell and topped with chocolate, butterscotch, or fruit sauce.

An outstanding feature of the angel pie is the method of preparation. The shell and filling are made the night before or several hours before serving time. The need for last minute preparation is eliminated, so the hostess can be unhurried and fresh to enjoy her guests.

Show off this attractive dessert and save time, too, by slicing and serving it at the table.

      Hi Maureen, I came across this post yetersday morning and attempted to replicate your stunning lemon meringue tart for my boyfriend's birthday (they're his favourite!). Reading your story and following your baking instructions was such a joy – while this recipe does require quite a bit of attention and waiting time, I had a great time spending the day making it perhaps because the end result was so rewarding! It was my first time making a lemon meringue tart, and it turned out beautifully. I substituted all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend, so my crust was more delicate and slightly more crumbly when first out of the oven, but was perfect once I had allowed it all to chill and set. Thank you!! x
