1855 Lemon Pie Recipe from the 1855 Mrs. Bliss’ Practical Cook Book. This is an amazingly good Lemon Pie recipe; it has a different texture than a lemon meringue pie recipe – but the lemon flavour is outstanding. This historic lemon pie recipe, relies heavily on eggs and is almost a soufflé, but not really. It’s definitely not a lemon curd, or a lemon custard.
Beat to a cream eight table-spoonfuls of fine white sugar and six of melted butter; add six whites and eight yolks of eggs well beaten, the grated rind of two lemons and the juice of one; stir the mixture, and pour into a deep dish lined with paste No. 8; put a strip of the paste around the edge of the dish, and bake thirty minutes.
No. 8. Tart or Pudding Paste.
Rub one pound of butter into one pound of sifted flour, with two tea-spoonfuls of salt; wet with cold water to a stiff paste, roll out to an eighth of an inch in thickness, brush beaten egg over it, sprinkle fine sugar upon it, and use it.
– This pie filling suits a 9″ shallow pie dish.
– The oven was set to 200ºC (400ºF), and the pie was baked sitting on a pizza stone to transfer heat quickly to the base of the crust. Mimicking the floor of a wood hearth.
– Our All Butter Pie Crust would be a great sub for No. 8 Pudding Paste: https://youtu.be/kzwSTJQK9-g
