Creative Space with a twist of lemon

My husband’s creative space is the kitchen.


As previously posted, we have given ourselves the challenge of trying to use as many lemons as possible from our over laden tree. My husband was quite creative over the weekend and offered the following:


Number one – Lemon Meringue Pie.


It is an absolute winner and so very simple and delicious. The recipe was given to me by my lovely friend Kate, where all my best recipes come from, and I hope that she won’t mind that I share it with you all now…..



LEMON MERINGUE PIE

1 tin condensed milk
½ cup lemon juice
3 egg yolks (lightly beaten)
3 egg whites
½ cup castor sugar
½ pkt marie biscuits (I use a whole packet coz I love a good thick base)
90g butter, melted (double if you use more biscuits)

1. Crush biscuits, add butter and press into pie dish. Chill.
2. Combine condensed milk, lemon juice and egg yolk. Mix and pour into base. Chill.
3. Beat egg whites, adding sugar gradually to make meringue. Place on top of other layers.
4. Bake in moderate oven for approx. 15 mins.


Number two – Limoncello.

He was actually given the ingredients and the recipe for this lovely Italian liqueur as a $10 kriskringle present one year, but didn’t end up making it. Finally, a few years later, he was determined to give it a go.

You can find the recipe for this Limoncello here - my absolute favourite recipe website.
