  • 1 pre-baked pie crust
  • 4-5 blood oranges, juiced and zested
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar


Step 1: Prepare the Filling

In a medium saucepan, combine the granulated sugar and cornstarch. Gradually whisk in the blood orange juice and water until smooth. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Allow it to boil for one minute, then remove from heat.

Step 2: Temper the Egg Yolks

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Gradually add a small amount of the hot blood orange mixture into the egg yolks, whisking continuously. This process, known as tempering, prevents the eggs from curdling when added to the hot filling. Once tempered, pour the egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan, whisking constantly.

Step 3: Cook the Filling

Return the saucepan to medium heat and cook the filling, while stirring continuously, until it reaches a thick consistency, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the blood orange zest and butter. Allow the filling to cool slightly.

Step 4: Make the Meringue Topping

In a clean mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually add in the granulated sugar and continue whisking until stiff peaks form. The meringue should hold its shape when the whisk is lifted.

Step 5: Assemble the Pie

Pour the blood orange filling into the pre-baked pie crust, spreading it evenly. Next, carefully spoon the meringue on top, starting from the edges and working your way towards the center. Create decorative peaks with the back of a spoon.

Step 6: Bake and Serve

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the assembled pie in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the meringue turns golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow the pie to cool to room temperature before cutting and serving.


Congratulations! You have successfully created a scrumptious blood orange meringue pie. The harmonious combination of tart blood oranges, creamy filling, and fluffy meringue is sure to delight your taste buds.
