DIRECTIONS

  • Crush the digestive biscuits (putting them in a freezer bag and attacking them with a rolling pin works well).
  • Melt the butter and add it to the crumbs. The mix should pack well.
  • Pack it down to less than 1cm thick in the base of either a large tin or dish, or in cupcake or muffin cases in a muffin or cupcake tin.
  • Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius
  • Separate the eggs.
  • Beat the yolks with the juice of the 3 lemons and the zest of one of the lemons, until white and frothy.
  • Add the can of condensed milk and beat until fully integrated and "gloopy".
  • Spoon a layer of lemon mix atop the biscuit base(s).
  • Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, then slowly add caster sugar. When ready, the meringue should be at the firm peak stage and lovely and glossy.
  • Spoon meringue over the lemon mixture.
  • Bake for 15 mins at 150 degrees C or until the meringue is gold on top.
