Lemon Meringue Tart

Lemon Meringue Tart is my Moms' favourite dessert although I'm not very keen, I personally find the candied lemon zests on top the best part!
It's a sweet pastry base (made with icing sugar not caster sugar as it makes it so much more delicious), a lemon curd centre (eggs, sugar and lemon juice whisked on water bath till thickened) and a meringue topping (I cheated by doing a French meringue but an Italian meringue -if you have the time- would be best) all finished off with candied lemon zest (twice brought to the boil then candied in a simple syrup).

Next week: Tarte Tatin x
