I’ve always thought the best part of a lemon meringue pie is the topping. Airy and light, it’s the perfect foil to an intense, sweet-tart citrus filling. I like how the meringue crackles between your teeth, and how alluringly it browns in pretty swirls when toasted.

Instead of sticking with a standard pie crust (which you could do), I made a shortbread crust. Not only is the buttery, rich crust an excellent match for chocolate, but you also need merely to press it into the pan instead of rolling out pie dough.

It also makes the tart reminiscent of a s’more, but far more elegant. That, in addition to this tart being easy to make ahead of time, means it should be moved to the top of your dessert list. And it will convert any lemon meringue pie lover to the chocolate camp.
