    Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. The best thing about this lemon chiffon pie is the contrast of flavors between sweet and tart. I used a creamy lemon-flavored honey, which was such a great alternative to most recipes that call for sugar.

     

    I had a little trouble getting the consistency just right to hold its shape. Although the first slice came out perfect after chilling overnight, afterwards, the filling began oozing into the spot where the pie piece was removed and the next time we wanted another slice, the chiffon had by that time displaced the empty spot to fill in the entire pie tin, decreasing the overall height of the filling.

     

    The taste and texture, however, are perfect!

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    (*If you use another flour, be sure to use one which already includes xanthan gum and is not bean or rice-based, so that it has a proper bulk to starch ratio and will not make the pie dense or gritty.  The recipe for my all purpose flour may be found in my cookbook, Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating, or in various media links from my website, and ...

    Pavlova is a dessert with a meringue base that was created in honor of the ballet dancer Anna Pavlova when she was touring in New Zealand and Australia. The main ingredient  that separates pavlova from a normal meringue, is the addition of cornstarch and vinegar to the egg white mixture. The cornstarch, egg and vinegar creates a chemical reaction which results in a fluffy, marshmallow center.
