Faux Lemon Meringue Pies

These are almost embarassingly easy to make...


1 pack of premade pastry cases
2 large eggs, separated
400g can condensed milk
80 ml lemon juice (use fresh juice - not horrible pre sweetened bottled juice like I did the first time!)
100g caster sugar

Preheat oven to 220 degrees C.

Whisk egg yolks, condensed milk and lemon juice and set aside to thicken.

In another bowl, beat egg whites to form soft peaks. Gradually add sugar, still beating until you have a thick, glossy meringue.

Spoon lemon filling into cases and top with meringue. Create peaks by drawing the spoon up.

Bake for 6 minutes until lightly browned.

Makes about 16.

  1. My grand mother used to prepare this for the Christmas dinner as dessert. I recommend this recipe it's delicious and it's a healthy food. One time per year isn't so bad.
