Easy Lemon Meringue Pie



12 slice(s)


  • 300 g Butternut Snap biscuits broken
  • 70 g unsalted butter cubed


  • 2 cans condensed milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • Juice of 2 lemons


  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 170'C.

    Blitz biscuits & butter together on speed 8-9 until combined (about 10 seconds).

  2. Scrape out as much as possible and press into medium/large pie dish. Set aside.

  3. Filling
  4. Without washing bowl, add all filling ingredients and mix on speed 4-5 for around 15 seconds or until combined and creamy.

  5. Pour over base into pie dish and bake in oven for around 15 minutes.

  6. Thoroughly clean & dry bowl & lid before making meringue (this is where a second bowl comes in VERY handy!).

  7. Meringue
  8. Place egg whites & cream of tartar into clean, dry bowl with butterfly. Set timer for 8 minutes, 50'C, speed 3-4, but watch carefully! When egg whites start to thicken and become silky, turn down to speed 2 and slowly add the sugar by pouring onto the lid and then scraping into the hole little by little. Once all sugar is incorporated, switch off and spoon over hot filling (ensuring you cover all the way to the edges onto the base).

  9. Turn oven down to 160'C and bake a further 10-15 min or until browned to your liking. Let cool and serve!
