Mini Blood Orange Meringue Pies


Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Pie Crusts, cut into 12 rounds
cup blood orange juice or red orange juice
blood orange, pulp removed
cup sugar
tablespoons cornstarch
teaspoon cream of tartar
pinch salt


  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Press pie crust rounds into a muffin tin. Bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and cool. Set aside.
  • 2 In a large bowl, combine blood orange juice, freshly squeezed blood orange juice, 1/2 cup of sugar, cornstarch, and 1 egg and two of the yolks in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 45-second bursts, whisking between each set, until the filling has set up.
  • 3 Remove pie crusts and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spoon thickened filling into the center of each crust.
  • 4 Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.
  • 5 In a stand mixer, beat the two remaining egg whites together until stiff peaks form. Add Cream of Tartar and remaining 1/4-cup of sugar. Whip just until a silky meringue forms.
  • 6 Spoon meringue atop each blood orange pie. Place in preheated oven and bake 8-12 minutes, or until the meringue is golden brown and cooked through. Remove and cool before serving.

1. Blood Orange Mini Meringue Pies

Blood Orange Meringue Pies Ingredients

This fun, little recipe starts with a simple lineup of ingredients. Even though there are several steps, they're supremely easy, with the filling actually cooking in the microwave, and the crust and meringue getting all toasty and warm in the oven. You mean, a beautiful recipe with both substance AND style? Oh, yes. It's like a feminist supermodel. Just all sorts of feisty goodness a happenin' in tiny, little pies.


Blood Orange Meringue Pies - dough in muffin tin

Start by pressing rounds of Pillsbury pie crust into a muffin tin. Bake until golden brown.


Blood Orange Meringue Pies - adding filling

While the pie crusts are getting all golden delicious, you'll toss together the simple blood orange filling in the MICROWAVE (yeah, it's like wearing heels to the playground, but don't diss. It's a perfectly legit way to work nowadays.)


Blood Orange Meringue Pies - add meringue

Spoon the blood orange filling into each pie cup, then top with fluffy, silken meringue. And no fussing about wearing white before labor day, the pie doesn't care. She's just all about looking good. Sometimes food gets vain like that.


Blood Orange Meringue Pies - place in oven

Gently transfer each itty bitty delight to a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven until the meringue sets, cooks through, and looks as perky as a summer day. All fashion references to the former sentence hereby withheld for propriety's sake.


Blood Orange Meringue Pies finished

With couth in tact, and a pan full of pies waiting behind the scenes, it's time to prep the runway.
