In “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” Alice spies a cake with “Eat Me” spelled out in currants. If there was ever a dessert that was its own “Eat Me” message, no words needed, it’s a pie topped with clouds of billowing meringue.

Pies may not seem like summer fare, but meringue pies, with their topping of fluffy egg whites, are an exception. That’s partly because they’re usually served cold and can be a refreshing end to a summer meal. It also helps they don’t require a long time in the oven, keeping the kitchen cool.
