Lemon meringue pie

An English tart, to bring some color to the table! The secret is to pull the cream well and not to whip the egg whites too much: otherwise you find yourself with two unmade elements and an unpleasant consistency. If you want, lemon curd, roll it with a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch instead of flour. Also, pay attention to the acidity of the lemon, because if it is too much, the cream will give too much contrast. However, it seems very difficult, but in reality it is enough to take our hand !! Try it and let me know !!

LEMON CURD. Taking care to have filtered juice, add 120 grams of sugar and 65 grams of butter. Heat all in a saucepan until the butter has melted. Over medium heat, slowly add the eggs to the wire: in 10 minutes the cream must have pulled without going crazy.

CAKE. Spread the shortcrust pastry on a 20 cm disk and cook at 180 degrees for 15 minutes with some scales and 10 minutes without. Remove from the oven, fill with the cream and decorate with a sac-a-poche with the meringue, trying to make spikes. Cook for another 5 minutes, until golden brown.
