Gluten Free Lemon Meringue Pie

This is the best gluten free lemon meringue pie. This is one of my many celiac friendly desserts, and like the others it will not disappoint! It makes use of my basic gluten free shortcrust pastry, which you will find in the basics section, and combines it with a delicious lemon curd and French meringue. You must make this recipe!

Basic Gluten Free Shortcrust Pastry

The purpose of a traditional shortcrust pastry using wheat flour is to develop as little gluten as possible to keep it as short and crumbly as possible. So, gluten free flour will actually do a great job here! Although the Lack of gluten will keep the pastry crumbly and short it also makes the dough very difficult to work with, thus, we will still add some xanthan gum to thicken.
