So easy, but so delicious!

Ingredients;

  • 125gms plain, sweet biscuits, crushed
  • 60gms butter, melted
  • 400gm can sweetened, condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 eggs separated *
  • 1/4 cup castor sugar

Method;

  1. Combine crushed biscuits and melted butter. Press into a 23cm pie plate and chill.
  2. Blend together condensed milk and lemon juice, add lightly beaten egg yolks and combine well.
  3. Poor evenly into chilled crumb crust.
  4. Beat egg whites until stiff, gradually add castor sugar.
  5. Spoon meringue on top of filling.
  6. Bake in a preheated 108 degrees Celsius oven for 10 mins, until golden.

I like extra high meringue, so sometimes double this amount, keeping the egg to sugar ratio the same. The extra egg yolks are great for custard.
