My sister requested that I made a Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert. I'd never made it before, therefore wanted to ensure that I made it as wonderfully as possible, especially as it was a request. Plus, I have had a fair few slices of LMP in my time and have pretty high expectations so I made sure I made the best possible version.
Well, believe it or not, I actually didn't get to try it! Oh no!
The recipe required you to make the base, curd and meringue from scratch. A lot of 'Chill for 2 hours' and 'refrigerate covered overnight' was going on so I'm pretty glad I started on Easter Saturday!
Here are some pics of the process!
*so-I'd never heard of blind baking before...I have always noticed those beads at The General Trader and had no idea what they were for and upon reading about them I see how they could be useful!
Fortunately, it's possible to use plain rice to blind bake soI layered the prepared base with foil, then filled it with the white rice. I then folded over the foil and popped it in the oven for 15 minutes.
Like I said, I didn't really get to taste it as I was so full from an enormous and delicious roast dinner, but my husband and sister said it was delicious, Phew!!
Happy Easter everyone!!
