Here's the recipe for those who want to indulge in yesterdays pie. I don't know how to not have gaps when I press enter so sorry about all the gaps. How do I get rid of them anyway?
And can someone please give that man in the advert for the gabriel diet method a piece – he's starving.
1 1/2 cups plain flour
2/3 cup cornflour
1/4 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon water
In a large bowl combine flour, cornflour and sugar. Roughly chop butter and rub into flour with fingertips until mix resembles fine breadcrumbs. Gradually add water until mix forms a ball.
I'd just like to say that I do all that in the food processor. I also used margarine instead of butter.
Preheat oven to 200 degree C.
Press pastry into base and sides of greased 24cm springform pan. Place in oven and cook 10 minutes until lightly browned.
Ok – I just use a normal glass pie dish and I find it takes closer to 20 minutes to cook like I want.
1 cup water
3 tablespoons cornflour
1 cup water
grated rind of 1 lemon
4 eggs separated
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar, extra
Place sugar and cornflour into pyrex jug. Mix to a paste with water. Add lemon rind. Microwave for 3 minutes on high until mix comes to the boil.
Mix in butter, egg yolks and lemon juice. Cook for a further 3 minutes on high stirring once during cooking. Chill for 1 hour.
Spoon into pastry case
Preheat oven to 16- degree C
Beat gg whites until stiff, gradually add 1/3 cup of sugar. Spread meringue over pie and cook on low rack for 15 to 20 minutes on lowmix/bake 160 degree.
Chill until ready to serve.
The low mix thing is because my oven is one that uses a mix of microwave and convection. So it may take a little longer if you just use convection.
