Mother's Day Card & Lemon Meringue Pie

  Hello, So glad you could stop by. Tomorrow is Mother's Day so I wanted to share with you the card that I made for my Mom.




 This card was made using a napkin. I had received it in some happy mail and I thought it would make a nice Mother's Day card.

Cut the Mom out on my Cricut and used the offset feature to add a border behind the sentiment in vellum.  

I know that you can't see it but I  added Wink of Stella to the Mom, parts of the eggs and to the centers of the flowers.

 Cardstock used is from Stampin Up and added a blue sheer ribbon.

Also wanted to share a recipe with you. This one is for Lemon Meringue pie. I hadn't made this for several years and decided to make one for Easter.

It's my Grand daughter's favorite pie. She was so excited to see that I had made one. 

After Easter I decided that I would make another one so that she could help and learn how to make them. We had a good time and the pie turned out delicious. 

Do you have a favorite pie? It's hard for me to choose one, My top favorites are pecan, chocolate chess pie, Lemon and coconut.

So here is the recipe if you would like to try it.


Lemon Meringue Pie

Ingredients needed 

1 1/2 cups sugar

1/3 cup cornstarch

1 1/2 cup water

3 egg yolks- lightly beaten

3 tbs. butter

1/4 cup lemon juice

Prebaked pie shell


Meringue  Topping

3 egg whites

1/4 tsp cream of tarter -can substitute w/ 1 tsp lemon juice

6 tbs sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

Get all ingredients ready, that includes prebaking the pie shell. In bowl mix sugar and cornstarch, pour into medium saucepan. slowly stir in water. Cook on medium heat until mixture thickens and boils. (Stir constantly) and boil for 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and slowly add about half the mixture in bowl with egg yolks. Return mixture back into saucepan.

Bring back to boil for 2 minutes stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and butter.Pour into pre 

baked pie shell. Oven should be set on 400 degrees.

For meringue, With mixer,beat egg whites and cream of tarter or lemon juice if you are substituting until white and frothy.

Very slowly add in sugar.beat constantly. (easier with stand up mixer). Continue beating until white and stiff peaks form. When you have stiff peaks add vanilla,beat until mixed in.

Pile meringue onto pie, the meringue needs to go all the way to the crust so the edges are sealed.

Make swirls for decorative top.

Bake pie at 400 degrees for 7-10 minutes. You want meringue to start to brown. Let cool before cutting.

 Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you have a lovely day and too all you Mom's, Happy Mother's Day.

  3. Oh Cindy this card is beautiful and yes, perfect for Mom! Lemon Meringue was my mother's favorite pie and I used to make it for her periodically. Cherry pie was always my favorite but for some reason as I have aged, it now gives me heartburn so I stay away from it. {sad face} lol
