Lemon Meringue Pie

So this week I was watching Mary Berry’s absolute Favourites and she made a lemon meringue pie which I thought sounded lovely and so decided to make it my bake of the week.  I think normally lemon meringue pies have a pastry base but Mary’s recipe has a butter biscuit base.

My pie dish was a bit bigger than the recipe stated and to compensate I doubled up the recipe unfortunately this didn’t really work well as I ended up with too much biscuit base and too much meringue and not enough lemon mixture.  The meringue though was lovely and crispy and next time I will try it with a pastry base.
