Not Your Usual Lemon Meringue Pie
Definitely unusual but unusually good. The unusual part being the "crust". It is constructed here with a few sheets of phyllo dough baked with butter and sugar to create crispy triangle pie slices. The good part being the lemon curd, of course. (There is a little one in my house that has eaten lemon curd toast for 7 days straight now.)
The proportions were a bit off in this recipe. The lemon curd made an ample amount which is obviously not a problem and the meringue was overwhelming (I even halved it!). The phyllo amounts seemed about right.
And due to my continued lack of a blow torch, I used the broiler method (to brown the meringue) and skipped the two tiered option of this dessert.
