I mentioned yesterday that ‘Friday Favourites’ will only appear when there is something really special that I want to share. This is one such recipe.
1 quantity of sweet pastry. See this previous post about making pastry, the sweet pastry recipe is towards the bottom of the page.
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 tablespoon plain flour
1 dessertspoon butter
Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks, water, juice and ring of the lemons. Place mixture in a saucepan with the sugar and flours. Blend carefully over a low heat until the mixture boils and thickens. Remove from the heat. Beat in the butter and allow to cool. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture. Spoon the mixture into the tart shell and sprinkle with coconut. Chill.
Serve with ice-cream or cream.
NOTES: You will have an egg white left from the pastry if you use my recipe so I usually add it to the other egg whites so I get a bit more to mix into the tart.
