Lemon Meringue Tart Recipe

Males have a sweet tooth. This makes it easy, and the safest bet is  lemon meringue tart. Men love it! The tart is made up of the intense,  sweet-and-sour flavours of lemon curd; the light, spongy but  crisp-textured meringue and the rich-flavoured biscuit base. A sugar  high of note!

Yields : 1 Tart

Ingredients :

1 pkt Tennis Biscuits

150 g Melted Butter

1 tin Condensemilk

Zest of 2 Lemons

100 ml Fresh Lemon Juice

4 Egg Yolks (Jumbo Eggs)

2 Egg Whites (Jumbo Eggs)

75 ml Castor Sugar

Method :

1) Place biscuits and melted butter into a liquidiser until semi-fine. Line the bottom of a pie dish with this mixture and place into the fridge to firm up

2) In a bowl mix condense milk, lemon zest, lemon juice and egg yolks together

3) Pour this into the chilled pie shell

4) Start beating the egg whites and slowly add the castor sugar until whites are firm and all sugar crystals are dissolved

5) Place this meringue on top of the condense milk mixture

6) Bake at 140ͦC for 25 minutes or until meringue is brown
