In a bowl put the flour, powdered sugar, salt and butter cut into pieces. Stir until the pieces of butter crumble. Then add the yolk and milk and knead. It will look like crumbled cookies. We make a guguluf from the dough and put it in food foil and let it cool for 30 minutes.

For the cream, I proceeded as follows: I put all the ingredients in a saucepan, keeping half the amount of butter aside and I put it on low heat, stirring constantly with the whisk, turning off the heat when the mixture has reached boiling point. After removing it from the heat, I added the rest of the butter.

For the meringue I did this: in a saucepan I poured the sugar and water and boiled them at 120 degrees C. When the sugar reached the temperature of 110 degrees C I started to beat the egg whites with the mixer. It is important to calculate the thyme well for the sugar and the egg whites must be ready at the same time. Pour the sugar little by little over the egg whites, stirring at high speed. When you have finished pouring all the sugar, reduce the speed and beat until the composition cools.

I greased a tart form with butter and spread the dough obtained on the entire surface with my fingers. Prick with a fork and put in the oven for 10 minutes, then take it out and add the cream and put it again for another 10-15 minutes. Then I took out the tart and added the meringue and put it in the oven for another 4 minutes, until it browned nicely.

Knead from the dough ingredients a suitable hard crust, which is left to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. It is then spread on the sheet and covered with a round, greased and wallpapered shape.

Prick the dough from place to place with a fork, place an aluminum foil and put dried beans so as not to allow the dough to grow. Place in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. The juice from two lemons is mixed with water, sugar and pudding powder. Place the pot on the fire and leave until it thickens, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat, add the yolks, butter and mix. Pour the cream into the tart. Beat the egg whites until stiff with the powdered sugar until it melts. At the end, gradually add the powdered sugar.

Spread the meringue over the lemon cream, lift with a fork from place to place and place in the preheated oven at 150 ° C for 20 minutes. Allow to cool for six hours, then cut into portions.

1. Sift the flour with the salt and add the soft butter (at room temperature). Stir until you get a crumbly meal. Add water and knead the dough. Use cold water so that the butter does not melt.

2. Give the dough a round shape and wrap it in cling film. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes (the butter will cool and it will be easier to work with the dough).

3. Prepare the lemon filling: separate the egg whites from the yolks.

4. Wash and dry the lemons. Peel a squash, grate it and squeeze the juice. Just shave the outer layer of the peel, as it only contains aromatic oil.

5. Drain the lemon juice and strain it to remove larger particles from the core and kernels.

6. In a saucepan, mix the sugar with the lemon juice and peel. Add the starch and flour. Mix until you get a homogeneous mass.

7. Add water and stir again.

8. Put the pan on the fire and bring the mixture to a boil. Make a small fire. During boiling, the cream will thicken, so stir it constantly.

9. In a bowl beat the egg yolks and add 1/4 of the boiled lemon cream. Stir in a faster tempo using a whisk.

11. Put the pan on the fire and bring the cream to a boil.

12. Add the butter and mix.

13. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and remove the cling film.

14. Sprinkle the work surface with a little flour and spread the dough on a 0.5 cm thick countertop.

15. Arrange the top in a baking dish. Arrange it as evenly as possible on the entire surface of the pot and form the border.

16. Stick the top several times with a fork (so that the dough does not rise during baking, but takes the shape of the bowl).

17. Cover the dough with baking paper and place a weight on top (also so that the dough is well fixed). It is best to pour beans or peas into shape.

18. Bake the top in the preheated oven at 180 ° C for 15 minutes.

19. Remove the form from the oven and remove the baking paper (including beans or peas).

20. Turn the top in the oven and bake for another 15 minutes.

21. Cover the baking sheet with lemon cream.

22. Prepare the meringue: mix the egg whites with the powdered sugar. Put the egg white bowl on the steam bath and mix using a mixer. Get a dense foam with stable tips. Do not overheat the water in the pot (it should not boil continuously).

23. Fill a pastry bag with egg white foam and cover the tart with meringue. If you do not have a pastry bag, you can pour the meringue on the tart and shape the tips with a spoon.

24. Place the tart in the preheated oven at 250 ° C for 5-10 minutes, until the meringue browns slightly.

    Lemon meringue pie

    The famous and well-known lemon tart, I never ate, I only heard of it. I did a google search and stopped at this recipe. The result, a tart with sour cream sweetened to the top of the meringue above & # 8230 if you like lemon sweets, try it!

    For the crust:
    260g flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    110g cold butter
    60 ml very cold water

    For the cream:
    200g old
    grated peel of a large lemon (14g peel)
    60g food starch
    a pinch of salt
    320 ml of cold water
    70 ml strained lemon juice
    4 yolks

    For meringue:
    4 egg whites
    8 tablespoons sugar

    The first time we make crust. Put flour and chopped butter in a bowl. Rub with a fork until the mixture becomes sandy. Add a tablespoon of very cold water and mix. When the dough has set, we gather it in the shape of a ball, cover it with a foil and let it cool for 30 minutes.

    Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C.
    We take out the dough, we spread it on a baking sheet, then we put the tray over it to orient ourselves about how big we have to spread it. The dough should be 2 cm above the edge of the tray. Turn the tray over, then peel off the baking sheet and arrange the dough nicely.

    We cut what is extra. We prick from place to place with a fork.
    Put the sheet back over the dough and put beans in the middle so as not to increase the dough when baking
    Bake for 10 minutes, then take the sheet and bake another 5 to brown nicely everywhere.

    Let cool and prepare the cream.
    Wash the lemon well with hot water then wipe it and shave it. We must have 14g grated peel.
    Put the sugar, starch and lemon peel in a saucepan. Mix well and add the yolks. Stir, add lemon juice and water. Put the pan on low heat, stirring constantly and when it starts to thicken, keep the cream on the fire exactly 1 minute after which turn off the heat and let it cool a bit.

    Prepare bezeaua. In a dry bowl, beat the egg whites with a little lemon juice. Add the sugar little by little and beat until everything melts. Here I found out an important secret. The sugar must be completely dissolved, so later the meringue will not make liquid pearls. To remember :).
    In the baked crust, pour the lemon cream, level nicely and then add the meringue. We touch the meringue with the back of the spoon and pull it up to give it a word shape.

    Bake in the oven over low heat for about 10 minutes, until the meringue turns light brown.
    Remove from a grill to cool. Serve after refrigerating for at least 2 hours.

    Lemon and meringue tart

    A professional dessert expert, passionate about European sweets, pastries, sourdough bread and yeasted goods. Currently based in San Francisco Bay.

    Marina Musteata

    The origin of lemon tart comes from France - lemon pie. Over the years, however, it has been adapted and modified countless times, and today we can enjoy its many variations and tastes.

    The classic tart is based on only two elements, the Pâte Brisée crust and the lemon filling, which is poured into the pre-baked crust and left in the oven until it browns and caramelizes completely. To accentuate the sour taste of lemons, the tart is decorated and served with meringue.

    To prepare this dessert, you will need a portion of Brisée dough, see the recipe and how to prepare it here.

    After preparing the dough, you will bake the crust at 200 C, using a medium weight in the first 10-15 minutes, then you will remove the weight, you will lower the oven temperature to 190 C and you will add the lemon filling.

    Ingredients for lemon filling

    • 150 ml of lemon juice, about 3 lemons
    • 5 eggs
    • 200 g sugar
    • 100 g melted butter
    • peeled from the 3 lemons, only the yellow part

    Working method

    In a saucepan, mix the sugar with the grated lemon peel. This allows the essential oils of lemon to infuse the sugar with flavor. Add the eggs in the sugar and beat the composition until it becomes white and frothy. Add the lemon juice, then incorporate the still hot butter, stirring quickly so that the eggs do not coagulate. Pour the lemon cream over the pre-baked crust. Bake the tart for about 30-35 minutes. It is ready when the filling is golden on the outside, and in the middle it shakes slightly when it is moved.

    Ingredients for Italian meringue

    • 150 g sugar
    • 60 ml of water
    • 60 g egg white at room temperature
    • a pinch of salt

    Working method

    In the bowl of a mixer, put the egg whites, add the pinch of salt and start mixing at low speed, until the egg whites become frothy and increase slightly in volume. Meanwhile, in a pot with a thicker bottom, add the sugar, pour the water carefully without leaving the sugar on the edges too much. In order not to allow the syrup to crystallize during boiling, you will not mix the composition. Bring the pot to a boil over medium heat. Boil the syrup until it reaches a temperature of 116 C. Check the temperature using a pastry thermometer. When the syrup has reached working temperature, change the mixer to medium speed and add the syrup slowly, letting it drip onto the inside of the bowl. After you have added all the syrup, change the medium speed to sea and mix the meringue until it reaches room temperature. The meringue can be used for decoration.

    Assemble the lemon tart and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes before serving.
