Lemon and Lime Meringue Pie


This is very similar to a lemon meringue pie but needs half the work and effort.

It’s a recipe my mum taught me which is perfect as she learnt it from her Kenwood recipe booklet and I wanted to test a Kenwood Chefette mixer for a review.

It’s fairly easy to make even more so if you have a stand mixer though a hand mixer will do as will a whisk at a push though your wrist will get very tired doing meringue by hand.

Ingredients

THE BASE
400g Digestive biscuits
100g butter
THE FILLING
400g tin condensed milk
6 egg yolks
Juice of 3 limes, zest of 1.
Juice of 2 lemons, zest of 1
THE MERINGUE
6 egg whites
300g Caster sugar

Instructions

1
THE BASE
2
Grind the biscuits to crumbs in a blender, food processor or pop them into a strong food bag and bash with a rolling pin.
3
Melt the butter in the microwave then mix into the biscuit crumb.
4
Grease an 11" springform tin with butter then pour the biscuit mix in and spread it so it is even and compact. Pop it in the fridge to set.
5
THE FILLING
6
Beat the egg yolks in a bowl using a stand mixer, hand mixer or whisk. A minute or two will do.
7
Add the rest of the filling ingredients and mix well then pour into the set biscuit base. Pop it back in the fridge to set.
8
Pre heat your oven to 180C or GM4.

THE MERINGUE TOPPING
10
Best the egg whites until they are stiff and don't move when you tilt the bowl.
11
Turn the setting to medium then pour in the Caster sugar little by little and mix until it is smooth and stiff.
12
Pour this on top of the other ingredients in the tin then smooth it out to make it even before making peaks with a fork to make it more presentable.

13
Bake this in the top of your oven for 25 to 30 minutes until the top starts to brown slightly.
14
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire wrack. Be careful as hot syrup may leak from the bottom.
15
When fully cooled, pop in the fridge for an hour before removing the tin. See below for instructions.
16
To do so, boil some water and stick it in a jug then stick a knife in to heat it. Run this knife around the edge and then remove the sides of the tin once done.
