How long should lemon pie cool before refrigeration?

User Avatar
Until it's cold. This may take a few hours, so try putting insulated cool-blocks or ice under the plate which it's cooling on.

How long can lemon meringue pie sit out?

User Avatar
Depends on what you mean by sitting out. Do you mean by waiting until it rots? If thats the case, you can keep it for about 2 or 3 weeks in the refrigerator in containers. Hope this helps!

Can you freeze lemon meringue pie?

User Avatar
Yes you can, but it needs to be on a flat surface, and it's better frozen without the meringue, with fresh meringue added and baked after.

How do you store lemon meringue pie cover with saran or foil refrigerate?

User Avatar
Saran Wrap is better than foil for meringues. It is much lighter and more flexible. It will keep your points from getting all smashed up. If you are concerned about preserving the look of your pie, insert toothpicks about halfway into the meringue so that the wrap sets on top of the picks instead of the pie.

How long do you cook a lemon meringue pie?

User Avatar
You don't cook a lemon meringue pie. You put the filling in a prebaked crust and only put it back in the oven to brown the meringue for 10 minutes or so.

Asked in Lemon Meringue Pie

Can a lemon meringue pie be frozen?

User Avatar
No. Meringue, which is made of whipped egg whites and sugar, does not freeze well. You could always freeze your pie prior to putting the meringue on it, and then make your meringue after you thaw the pie.

How long can you keep a lemon meringue for?

User Avatar
It takes about 2 days before the meringue begins to break down if you leave it covered at room temperature; it breaks down faster in cooler temperatures. If you are not a fan of the meringue, you can certainly skip adding any to the pie and use whip cream instead.

Asked in Lemon Meringue Pie

Why does water form in a lemon meringue pie?

User Avatar
If you are using a store bought pie crust, you need to make sure that it is fully thawed before using it, or that you baked it per the directions on the box. Once your pie is baked, then cooled, then filling and meringue is added, then baked again, your pie needs to cool to room temperature, then placed in the fridge for several hours to firm up
