Quick Lemon Meringue Pie

Serve with ice cream or pouring cream.

What to do:

Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 7. Remove the packaging on a shop bought sweet pastry case, and place the tart case on a baking sheet. Spoon the two jars of zesty lemon curd into the tart case and level. Put the egg whites in a large bowl and whisk until soft peaks form when the whisk is removed. Add the sugar to the egg whites, a little at a time whilst continuing to whisk until the meringue becomes stiff and glossy. Spoon the meringue on top of the filled tart case and spread to evenly cover. Bake for about 5 minutes or until the meringue is golden. Serve warm or cold.
