Thanks to yesterday's little experience (see post), I have discovered a wonderful new recipe. I hope you'll let me share it with you.
Bake pastry base and fill with lemon filling
Add meringue topping, and place in very hot oven for twenty minutes. The meringue should be an even black colour.
Get someone to hold the rubbish bin and carefully remove all the burnt meringue. It should come off more or less in one piece (this part is oddly satisfying). Discard in bin.
Make more meringue, and bake for an hour in cool oven this time. The meringue should be a nice golden colour.
Voila! Thrice-baked lemon meringue pie.
