Who doesn’t love a good lemon meringue pie? Lemony pastry base with a pillowy, meringue top - beyond delicious!
But did you know you can whip them up in the $29 Kmart Pie Maker? One clever home baker has revealed her clever - and very easy! - technique for recreating the yummy treat in the everyday appliance, and we couldn’t love it more.
Posting on the awesome Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia Facebook group, member Nicola revealed her fabulous recipe.
She writes: ‘So I thought I’d try lemon meringue pie the easy way, soooo yum ... It’s a massive hit here!’
Nicola adds: ‘Here is the recipe I used ... I used short crust pastry, 1 tablespoon of lemon butter. To make the meringue I used 3 egg whites, 1 and 1/2 cups caster sugar, half a cup of water and half a teaspoon of cream of tartar. Cooked beautifully!’
Nicola also clarifies that she added pastry to the top of the pie also - so the meringue wouldn’t stick to the pie maker. Genius!
Not surprisingly, the pies went down a treat with the group’s other followers!
‘This page is the reason the diet I was meant to start a month ago keeps getting postponed 😂 ,’ laughed one. Said another: ‘Holy moly!’
Added a third: ‘Just wow! Can’t wait to make these!’
We couldn’t agree more! And for more amazing ideas, make sure you’re following the Kmart Pie Maker Recipes, Tips and Ideas Australia page on Facebook - you’ll love it!
