Lemon Meringue Pie

there is an abundance of lemons in the house ... and what can we do with lemons other than lemonades? well ... lemon meringue pie, it is!

I first tasted the pie when we went visiting my papa's friends in Sydney, masa tu umur 12 tawun. masa tu kitaorg dihidangkan makanan sedap-sedap ... and last sekali aunty tu bawak kua this pie for dessert. mase tu mmg takjub gile la dgn rupa and rasa pie tu ... sedap gile ... and rasa mesti susah gile kalau nak buat such a dish.

tapi tak sangka lak pwincess berjaya buat this dish. susah tak susah, cuma leceh sket. anyhow, gumbiraaaaaa yaaa aku gumbiraaaa wahahaha ... !!

Lemon Meringue Pie
Ingredients:

Pastry:

1 and 1/2 cups plain flour
3 teaspoons icing sugar
140g butter
1 egg yolk
2 tbs water


filling:

1/2 cup cornflour
1 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 and 1/4 cups water
2 tsp grated lemon rind
3 egg yolks
60g unsalted butter


Meringue:

3 egg whites
1/2 cup caster sugar

hmmm ... alahai. malas nak type cara-cara nak buat, buleh? nway, pwincess made these pies in small mini pie dishes yang prince banjer aritu and they are such a beauty. mama siap curik2 poke the meringues and tak saba-saba nak makan. i think the next time I do this pie, pwincess nak reduce the amount of sugar in the lemon curd .... and i need to pektis lagi how to create tanduk-tanduk tu :p
