Simon’s work mate Dirk reckons he can make a pretty good Lemon Meringue Pie. Since I love lemony deserts I kept this little factoid in my memory, reminded Simon numerous times, and what do ya know?… during the weekend we went and hung out with Dirk while he made us a Lemon Meringue Pie. The pie was awesomely good and I got the recipe :)
You will need:
250g packet plain biscuits, crushed
3 tablespoons sugar
395g can sweetened condensed milk
½ cup lemon juice (approx. 3 lemons)
3 tablespoons caster sugar
170g margarine, melted
Grease a 17.5cm x 28cm baking dish. Mix the biscuits, sugar and the melted butter together. Press the biscuit mixture into the prepared dish.
Separate the eggs. Add the yolks to the condensed milk and mix until combined. Add the lemon juice and mix again. Pour over the biscuit base and bake in a 180˚C oven for 10 minutes, until brown.
Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the caster sugar and beat again until stiff.
