Lemon Meringue Cheesecake

It’s funny how new ideas comes to light… Look I have searched high and low for a recipe like this! There is none on google and also not this concept! Yes, it’s a brand new one, the meringue has too many sugar in, but a victory in itself.

The meringue is not overly sweet and also not too subtle but just right! First time making meringue and so proud of myself!

Hope you enjoy this recipe and make it for years to come! Happy April too!

Crust:

2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter(I used margarine as we did not have butter)

2 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

Put the oven on 180 Degrees Celsius.

Place all the ingredients in the food processor and add the two eggs while mixing.

Spray and cook the tart dish and press the crust until whole tart dish is covered on the sides as well.

Place in the oven till the edges of the crust turn golden brown for about 10-15min.

After it is golden brown set aside to cool down.

Place 750g cream cheese in an electric mixer and mix well.

I used Barkers Lemon Curd. (store bought)

While mixing add 787.5g lemon curd(room temperature) and mix well.

After it is well incorporated into the cream cheese, add 125ml of Cream and mix well.

Place the cream cheese mixture on top of the base after it has been cooled down, and place in the fridge to set.

For the topping. Add 8 egg whites at room temperature in the electric mixture.

After the egg whites have began to form

peeks and go cloudy white, add 1.5kg of caster sugar while mixing.

Add 250ml of icing sugar and keep mixing on low speed.

Add 1tsp of cream of tartar.

Add any pack of jelly while mixing.

Last step is to add 2Tbs of Vinegar and mix on high for 15min.

After the light has gone off in the oven after it was on 180 degrees celsius turn it down to 120 degrees.

Place scoops full of meringue on a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Place in the oven for 1hr and after 1hr turn off the oven so that it cools down completely before removing it.

Place on top of the lemon curd cheesecake and place in the fridge!

Sweet and lemony and tasty and just delicious as a dessert!
