Mojito Pie topped with fresh lemon and lime slices, mint leaves, and white meringue cookies

Gluten-Free Mojito Pie

Made with fresh lemon and lime and garnished with powdered sugar and meringue cookies, this Gluten-Free Mojito Pie is a show-stopper in flavor and appearance! I used a long nonstick tart pan with fluted edges instead of a traditional pie pan because I love the look of it.

Ingredients

For the pie:

  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) canola oil or other neutral oil
  • cups (210 g) gluten-free all-purpose flour, plus a little more for dusting
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.5 g) kosher or fine sea salt
  • cup (155 g) powdered sugar, divided
  • cup (150 g) cold butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons (8 g) unflavored powdered gelatin
  • ¾ cup (180 mL) heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup (120 g) mascarpone cheese
  • cup (160 mL) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon (6 g) grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon (2 g) grated lime zest

For garnish:

  • 1 lemon , thinly sliced
  • 1 lime , thinly sliced
  • 10-12 vanilla meringue cookies
  • 5-7 fresh mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon (2.6 g) powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prepare a long nonstick tart pan, around 14x4.5-inch, preferably with fluted edges. Grease it with 1 teaspoon canola oil.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the flour with salt, ½ cup powdered sugar, and the cold butter, until fine crumbs form. Add egg yolks and knead the dough with your hands until perfectly smooth. Tightly wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Roll out the dough and place it into the tart pan. Thoroughly line the bottom and sides of the pan, then trim excess dough edges. Line the crust with foil and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove pie weights and bake for 20 minutes more, until the crust is golden. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan on a wire rack.
  • Place gelatin and 2 tablespoons cream in a small bowl and let stand until gelatin is softened, 5-10 minutes. Warm remaining cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until steaming, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add gelatin mixture, and whisk until smooth. Whisk in mascarpone, the remaining powdered sugar, and citrus zest and juice. Pour into the pie crust. Chill overnight, allowing to set. Just before serving, garnish with slices of lemon and lime, meringues, fresh mint, and powdered sugar.
