Lemon meringue is awesome. Here’s how to make it (it’s easy as delicious pie)

Lemon meringue is awesome.

Not figuratively awesome; literally awesome (as in; it inspires awe).

You’d expect something as glorious as lemon meringue to be very hard to make – it isn’t!

Here’s how you do it:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Packet (200g) Tennis biscuits

  • 100g Melted butter

  • 2 Cans (387g each) condensed milk

  • ½ Cup (125ml) lemon juice and zest of 2 lemons

  • 4 Egg yolks

  • 4 Egg whites

  • ¾ Cup (150 g) castor sugar

  • 2 Tsp (10ml) cornflour

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a tart pan.

  • Blitz the Tennis biscuits and butter together until they resemble breadcrumbs.

  • Cover base and sides of tart pan with crumble and press down to compress.

  • Pop into the freezer to harden.

  • Mix lemon juice, zest, condensed milk and egg yolks together.

  • Pour mixture over cooled crust and bake for 15 -20 minutes or until set.

  • Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks form and then slowly add castor sugar a couple of spoons at a time, whisking continuously until stiff and shiny.

  • Remove pie from oven and sift over cornflour.

  • Spoon meringue over the surface of the curd and bake an additional 15-20 minutes.

  • Turn the oven off, open the oven door slightly and allow the pie to cool down before removing.
