      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Recipe's preparation

    Sweet Crust Pastry
  1. Lightly grease pie dish and set aside.

    Prepare sweet crust pastry from BCB (page 50) or EDC (page 129).

    Work into a tight ball & wrap in plastic wrap. Refridgerate for a minimum of 45 minutes or until chilled.

    Once chilled, transfer pastry onto Thermomat or floured bench then roll out pastry to line your pie dish. Transfer to prepared pie dish and remove any excess pastry over the edges. Prick pastry all over with a fork.

    Preheat over to 180*. Blind bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Set pastry aside and allow to completely cool.
  2. Lemon Filling
  3. Place lemon juice into the mixing bowl together with sugar, custard powder and water. Blitz for 20 secs/sp 10.

    Add butter and cook mixture 10 mins/80 deg/sp 2.

    Allow to cool a little then pour into the baked pie case.
  4. Meringue Topping
  5. Add suger to the bowl and mill 10 secs/sp 10. Set aside and clean and dry the bowl.

    Add the egg whites to the bowl and insert the butterfly whisk. Add cream of tartar and whip for 3-4 mins/37 deg/sp 3.5 till stiff peaks form.

    With the MC removed, slowly add the milled sugar, one spoonful at a time through the hole in the lid whilst mixing for 4 mins/37 deg/sp 3.

    Pile the meringue on top of the filling with the spatula and spread the meringue evenly making sure it comes right to the edges. Using a fork, gently create swirls and peaks.

    Bake at 180* for 5-10 mins until the meringue peaks are a golden brown.

Gluten Free Option

This recipe is easily converted to gluten free by using GF Plain Flour for the pastry and ensuring the cornflour used is also GF. The pastry dough is very crumbly and instead of rolling it out first, simply press it uniformly into the pie dish and bake as instructed above.
