Daring Bakers Challenge: Lemon Meringue Pie


This month's challenge came from Jen over at The Canadian Baker. And she picked the perfect dessert for the post holiday sweet overload. A tangy lemon meringue pie from "Wanda's Pie In The Sky," by Wanda Beaver. Yum. I decided to go with the free form tartlettes so we could savor the deliciousness over the week but Xander had other plans.


During the photo shoot he decided that I needed to be paying attention to him and not some dumb mini tarts and he tried to grab for one, resulting in this.


At least we got to eat two the night before and of course we had two more in the ice box so all was not lost.

Thanks for the great challenge Jen!

What's next?

Good thing you got the one photo in! Children are not the only ones who "help" in that way...my dog likes to do that...but she eats it up off the floor.
