Lemon Meringue Pie

Women Network threw a farewell party for Sheh Hwa at my house last Friday. SH is leaving Miri to Holand for job posting. Considering it was a working day, I catered most of the foods (SH's treat) except desserts. Desserts & kuih were potlucked from few friends & I made the above pie.

1¼ cup Plain Flour
3 tbs Icing Sugar
125g Butter
3 tbsp Iced Water

¼ cup Corn Flour
1/3 cup Water
1 cup Lemon Juice (I used ½ cup juice coz not enough + water)
2 tsp finely grated Lemond Rind
¾ cup Sugar
6 Egg Yolks
30g Butter

6 Egg Whites
¾ cup Caster Sugar

1. Prepare pastry & line 22-24cm pie pan.
Chill for 20 minutes. Blind bake at 180oC for 10 minutes.
Remove beans & bake another 10 minutes until pastry is light golden.

2. Mix filling ingredients, except egg yolks & butter, in a sauce pan.
Stir over moderate heat until boils & thicken & simmer for a minute.
Remove from heat & whisk in Egg Yolks & Butter.
Cover with foil & cool completely.

3. Beat Egg Whites until soft peaks.
Beat & add Sugar gradually until thick & glossy.

4. Pour filling into pastry shell & spread meringue over the top.
Bake at 150oC for 20 minutes until lightly brown.
