Etsy Favorites - Lemon Meringue Pie

Not too long ago I was listening to a morning radio show that claimed that America's least favorite pie is lemon meringue.  This didn't surprise me, given the way most people feel about lemons.  Yet despite its unpopularity, this tart treat is among my favorite desserts, right up there with its key lime cousin.  Even those who eschew the pastry's taste can't deny the visual appeal of its yellow and white color scheme and custardy texture.  Both have inspired countless artistic creations, a few of which are pictured here. 

As for Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, I know he's not a lemon.  But he made me laugh and seemed as good a way as any to close this post.
