Step 6: (almost there) making the meringue

you need
4egg whites
MORE sugar 300g and a little of the sticky brown sugar for good measure
the mould with shortbread coverd in lemon curd (from part 5)

step 1
Whisk the egg whites until stiff

Add half the sugar (150g) and whisk again

step 3
Fold in the remaining sugar (and the sticky brown sugar) with a metal spoon

step 4:
Gently spread the egg whites across the lemon curd using the metal spoon

step 5
Insert the mould into the oven for about 10 minutes, until the meringue is golden, crispy on the outside soft and fluffy on the inside. and the uncooked shortbread base will have melded seamlessly into the curd.
I can taste it, just from your pictures!
I can't wait to try your recipe! I love lemon pie! I like to add chopped pecans to my lemon pie crust to add a little dimension, smooth, creamy & nutty/crunchy
I don't think I've had lemon meringue pie and you sure make it look delicious! Maybe I'll be able to find time to make it this season :D
cheers, let me know how it turns out
