    I will have to try and find my lemon meringue pie recipe for you hun. not sure where it is but my memory might be working well enough as is

    Shortcrust pastry base

    1 tin sweetened condensed milk
    3 Eggs - separated
    Lemon juice (cant remember how much, try doing it to taste)
    castor sugar

    Combine sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks and lemon juice. Pour into shortcrust pastry base. Blend egg whites and gradually add sugar until stiff peaks form. Put this over lemon mix and bake at 150 degs (i think) until the peaks have golden tips.

    I think that is pretty darn close to the recipe I was given by a pro. It should work.

    mmmm blueberry pie.
    I've got no recipe for you but I read today that a diet that is rich in blueberries reduces muffin tops and hence heart disease.
    Go the blueberry!!!

    Ok its decided I'm making blueberry pie tomorrow night. I found a good recipe in my Martha Baking Handbook. I'll cheat though and use a bought short crust base and cut out stars of short crust pastry and layer them. I like your filling though PB I like the idea of using amaretti biscuits instead of corn flour. Are these tried and true recipes?

    Yep!!! I have an old awesome cook book. I love making dessert more than cooking dinner!! Doing a citrus tart tonight.....


    eta.. the lime was originally hand made pastry, but the bought is good, and easy, too. Dont use bought on the blueberry, just not the same....

    Because I'm lazy I googled this recipe instead of typing it myself. It's absolutely delish and the pecans and oats make it feel like it's healthy

    I make it with thinly sliced pink lady (or similar) apples and a punnet of blueberries

    Blueberry Pecan Crumble

    If you don’t have enough blueberries, toss in any other fruit like chopped apple, plums, peaches, bananas or pears.

    * 100 g (4 oz) pecan pieces 100 g (4 oz) plain flour
    * 120 g old-fashioned/rolled oats
    * 100 g packed dark brown sugar
    * 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    * A pinch of salt
    * 8 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces
    * 400 g blueberries
    * 1/2 lemon, juiced
    * 1 tablespoon sugar
    * 2 tablespoons plain flour

    Preheat oven to 180?C, 350?F, gas mark 4. In a large bowl combine pecans, most of the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt and butter, and rub until combined and mixture resembles bread crumbs. Place the blueberries in a baking dish and squeeze the lemon juice over. Sprinkle with sugar, cinammon and the remaining flour, and toss to coat. Scatter the topping over the berries and bake until golden brown, about 45 minutes.

    ETA - it's not quite a pie but it's too yummy to be left out while we're talking hot fruity deserts. I love it with a nice rich custard.

    Ok this is the BEST pie recipe in the world, I got in from a old friend in Canada..

    (its not made from Turtles)

    TURTLE CARAMEL PIE

    Ing
    1 cup pecans
    1 (9 inch) pie shell, baked
    1 cup sweetened condensed milk
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup butter
    1/4 cup corn syrup
    2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 egg yolk
    3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

    Directions
    Place pecans into bottom of pie shell.
    To Make Filling: In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, cook condensed milk, brown sugar, butter and corn syrup. Stir and bring to a boil; stir continuously for at least 5 minutes. Remove from heat, then slowly beat with a spoon until mixture starts to thicken; will take about 2 minutes. Be sure not to over beat or it will harden too much. Pour mixture into pie shell; cover and refrigerate for about an hour. Filling ingredients may be halved to make for a less rich pie.

    To Make Topping: In a medium saucepan, cook chocolate and butter over low heat until melted together. Stir in condensed milk; mix well. Remove from heat; allow to cool just enough so that yolk won't cook when added, but not so cool that the chocolate hardens; cooling time will be about 3 minutes. Stir in egg yolk to chocolate mixture; spread over cooled filling. Place pie back in refrigerator and cool for another hour.
