Food Friday

Ed Stagg sits in for Ben Jackson

Base:

½ pack of crushed digestive biscuits
4oz butter

Filling:

2 x tins condensed milk
Juice & rind of 1 lemon
2 x egg yolks
200ml lemon juice

Topping:

6 x egg whites
6oz sugar

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees/gas mark 4
Bash up biscuits and melt the butter before combining the two and pressing into the bottom of a sandwich tin and pop into the fridge to cool
Meanwhile, combine the filling ingredients in a bowl and whisk until the eggs are well beaten into the mixture
Take the base out of the fridge and pour filling into the tin
Place the tin into the oven and bake for ten minutes to set the eggs and mixture
Whilst that’s happening, whisk the egg whites gradually adding the sugar slowly until it forms soft peaks
Once ten minutes is up, remove the pie from the oven and spoon the beaten egg whites onto the top, mounding it from the middle out
Place the tray back into the oven and bake for around 20 minutes but keep a close eye on it as the peaks of meringue could burn if you’re not careful!

Take out of oven, allow to cool and place a guard dog nearby to protect from eager hands…
