Lemon Meringue Pie

This lemon meringue pie is everything you want a pudding to be... it tastes decadent and delicious, but is remarkably healthy and actually very easy to make. Enjoy!



Make Lemon Curd (2 Lemons is more than enough here…)

Make your Pastry Case (this takes 5 minutes, then half an hour in the fridge, then 20 minutes blind baking….)

Make your Meringue…. by whisking together the 3 Free Range Egg Whites until they are at soft peak stage… Add a squeeze of Lemon Juice and the 100g Sugar.  Whisk again until stiff

Assemble the Lemon Meringue Pie by spooning Lemon Curd into the base (around 5 or 6 tablespoons will be good) making sure that it is evenly spread

Gently spoon the whisked Egg Whites on top, carefully sealing all the Lemon Curd inside the topping

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes at 170˚c but keep an eye on it to ensure it doesn’t burn

Is best served cooled and refrigerated, but is still delicious warm if you just can’t wait….
