    Description

    A very special recipe and my favourite - Be warned it is very sweet and very moreish.

    Method

    1. A. The Base
    2. 1. Crush the biscuits up fine.
    3. 2. Melt some butter and mix with the biscuits so the biscuit crumbs are moist.
    4. 3. Form biscuit mixture into a shallow ovenproof bowl (30 centimeters in diameter) to about 1/2 a centimeter thick.
    5. 4. Now cook in the oven on moderate temperature until crisp - but not brown.
    6. B. The Filing
    7. 1. Beat the condensed milk, salt, lemon juice and some lemon essence together until runny mixture is achieved.
    8. 2. Separate the yolk from the egg-white and then add the YOLKS only and mix well (keep the egg whites for the meringue mixture).
    9. 3. Now pour the egg yolks and condensed milk mixture into the bowl on top of the biscuit base. 4. Place back in the oven (160 C)until the tart is firm - about 10 to 20 mins.
    10. 5. Now take out of the oven and allow to cool.
    11. C. The Meringue
    12. 1. Beat the egg whites until frothy slowly adding the caster sugar and lemon essence until firm.
    13. 2. Scoop the meringue mixture on top of the tart mixture and smooth down to a consistent depth across the top of the pie.
    14. 3. Now place it back into a cool oven for about 20 mins.
    15. 4. You will know that the pie is ready as the top of the meringue will start to turn brown.

          This recipe was in the Sunday Times but used short crust pastry, I decided to use a biscuit base instead

          Method

          1. Use a 23cm cake/tart tin. Crush the biscuits and add the melted butter. Blind bake for 7-10 minutes.

          2. Put the cornflour, zest of two of the lemons and sugar into a pan on a medium heat. Gradually add the juice of all three lemons and 200ml of water, stirring all of the time. Take of the heat and whisk in the egg yolks and butter, return to the heat until thickens. (optional) Sift out the lemon zest.

          3. For the meringue, whisk the egg whites into soft peaks, then slowly add the sugar in four separate batches.

          4. Pour in the lemon filling, add the meringue on top then bake for 45-60mins at 120-150oC
