    Manami's Note:

    In her version of lemon meringue pie, Gale Gand forgoes a traditional crust for quick-baked sheets of sugared phyllo dough, which she layers with house-made lemon curd and a brown-sugar meringue. The recipe, a classic at Tru restaurant in Chicago, appears in Gand’s book Butter Sugar Flour Eggs (Clarkson Potter).Recipe by Gale Gand, from 50 Hall of Fame Best New Chefs: Hometown Heroes, July 2008 edition.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350°F
    2. 2
      Cut 2 sheets of parchment paper to fit a large baking sheet.
    3. 3
      Place 1 sheet of the parchment on a work surface.
    4. 4
      Top with a sheet of phyllo and brush with the melted butter.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of the granulated sugar over the phyllo.
    6. 6
      Repeat with 2 more sheets of phyllo so that you have a stack of 3 sugared sheets.
    7. 7
      Using a ruler, trim the phyllo to a 12-by-16-inch rectangle, then cut it into twelve 4-inch squares.
    8. 8
      Slide the parchment onto a baking sheet and top with the second sheet of parchment paper.
    9. 9
      Bake for 18 minutes, until the phyllo squares are golden and crisp. Let cool completely.
    10. 10
      Preheat the broiler.
    11. 11
      Put the brown sugar in a food processor; pulse to break up any lumps.
    12. 12
      In the bowl of a standing electric mixer fitted with a whisk, beat the egg whites at medium-high speed until soft peaks form.
    13. 13
      Beat in the brown sugar at high speed, a few tablespoons at a time, until the whites are glossy, 2 to 3 minutes.
    14. 14
      Transfer the meringue to a pastry bag with a plain tip.
    15. 15
      Spoon a dollop of lemon curd onto each phyllo square.
    16. 16
      Pipe a layer of meringue over the lemon curd (alternately, you can spoon the meringue over the curd).
    17. 17
      Broil 6 inches from the heat for 1 minute, or until lightly toasted.
    18. 18
      Set 6 phyllo squares on plates and top them with the remaining 6 squares.
    19. 19
      Garnish with raspberries, cashews, and serve.
