I use the edmonds cook book recipe. It is really easy (esp if you cheat and use the frozen pre-rolled short sweet pastry. It always turns out really well. let me know if you don't have a copy and I'll type the recipe out. cheers

Lemon Meringue Pie
Line dish with puff pastry, cook quickly until light brown. Filling: 21/2c water, 5 lemons, 3TBSPs cornflour, 11/2c sugar, 6 eggs, 1TBSP butter. Put water, sugar, butter, grated rind & juice of lemon into a saucepan. Bring to boil, thicken with 3TBSPs cornflour, & beaten egg yolks. Boil apporx 5 mins, allow to cool before filling the pastry case. Finally whip 6 egg wites till stiff, add 3TBSPs sugar & place on top. Return to oven to brown slightly.

i use custard powder not cornflour gives a richer yellow colour.
