Lemon Sponge Pie
With a creamy base and fluffy, spongelike top layer, Lemon Sponge Pie boasts a delicious combination of flavor and texture.
Why This Recipe Works
For the perfect fluffy, spongy Lemon Sponge Pie, we beat the egg whites to soft peaks. If beaten to stiff peaks, the whites deflated when mixed into the rest of the filling, and the pie turned out flat. We used both lemon zest and lemon juice in the filling for the brightest flavor in our recipe.
