Pretzel Crust:
Lemon Ice Cream:
Simple Meringue:


Special equipment: five 5-inch pie molds; a kitchen torch

For the pretzel crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the pretzels, brown sugar and melted butter in a food processor; pulse until finely ground. Press the crust evenly into 5-inch pie molds. Bake for 4 minutes. Let cool completely.

For the lemon ice cream: Combine all the ingredients in a large metal bowl. Place over a double boiler and whisk until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Let cool completely, then transfer the custard to an ice cream machine; spin for 20 minutes, until thick. Transfer to the freezer; freeze for 2 hours. Evenly fill each of the pie molds with the ice cream; freeze until ready to top with meringue.

For the simple meringue: Combine the egg whites and sugar in a bowl; whisk to stiff peaks.

Top the pies with the meringue. Toast the meringue with a kitchen torch, and serve.
