  • Ingredients
  • Recipe
  • Wheat flour200 g
  • Chilled unsalted butter200 g
  • Icing sugar100 g
  • Salt to taste
  • Egg6 unit(s)
  • Sicilian lemon3 unit(s)
  • Refined sugar350 g
  • Corn starch20 g
  1. For the dough, mix the flour with the icing sugar and a pinch of salt. Quickly add 100g cold unsalted butter cut into cubes, add 1 beaten egg and form a ball. You can add a little ice water to set if needed. Reserve in the fridge.
  2. For the filling, first grate the lemons on the grater and set aside half for the meringue. Squeeze the juice out of the lemons and bring to a boil quickly. Add to the bowl 4 egg yolks + 1 whole egg (reserve the whites for the meringue) and 200g of granulated sugar, mix well. Add 20g of cornstarch and lemon zest, mix quickly.
  3. With the beaten eggs and the boiled juice, combine both in a pan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook until thickened, about 5 to 10 minutes. After that, transfer it to a clean bowl and gradually add the other half of the butter (100g) also cut into cubes and very cold, mixing quickly with a fouet, the cream will be brighter. Reserve in the fridge.
  4. To bake the dough, open it the way you want and leave it in the freezer for at least 1 hour. The dough will bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 15 to 25 minutes, depending on your oven, don't let it brown too much. After baking, let it cool. Then add the cream and keep it in the fridge.
  5. For the meringue, take the whites you reserved from the cream and add 150g of granulated sugar and the other half of the lemon zest, take it to a bain-marie. The temperature of the meringue is between 45°C to 50°C, but if you don't have a thermometer you'll know it's ready when you touch the mixture and you don't feel any sugar grains anymore. Beat in the mixer until tripled in size and reach the point of hard nozzle. Decorate the pie as you like. For a more beautiful finish use the torch or take it to the oven quickly until golden.
