Looking for the perfect blood orange dessert recipe? This blood orange meringue pie recipe made from scratch is pure perfection!
Man, oh man… I love blood oranges! I’m always excited to stumble upon them in the grocery store in early spring, because they are hands down my favorite fruit. Don’t get me wrong, I love pineapple and strawberries and watermelon (oh my!) – but blood oranges win every time.
Maybe it’s because you can only get them a few months out of the year? I dunno. But what I do know is that last spring I had a hankering for this pie, but I kinda drank up all my supply in margaritas before I got around to making a pie. Then I couldn’t find any more. Bummer.
But it’s spring – so that means: they’re back! So this year I finally did it… and man it’s so good! My husband wasn’t too sure of the idea because he hates lemon meringue pie – but he loved this one. So much, in fact, that he went and bought more so I could make it again.
Confession: I made my pie crust from scratch (totally need to blog that recipe soon), but you can use your own recipe or a pre-made pie crust. The crust is the hardest part, anyway. You can make the rest in about 10 minutes… and you’ll never look at meringue pie the same.
PS – Make sure if you decided to make this blood orange dessert that you pile that meringue up HIGH! Trust me… it’s all kinds of better that way! 🙂
