Lemon curd


1.To make lemon curd, combine butter, egg, sugar, rind and juice in a small heatproof bowl. Stir over a small saucepan of simmering water for 10 minutes or until mixture coats the back of a spoon. Refrigerate lemon curd 3 hours or overnight until thickened.
2.Preheat oven to 120°C. Grease oven trays; line with baking paper.
3.Whisk egg whites, extra sugar and extra juice in a small bowl with an electric mixer for 15 minutes or until sugar dissolves.
4.Spoon mixture into the piping bag; pipe 4cm stars onto trays 2cm apart. Bake meringues for 1 hour or until dry. Cool on trays.
5.Just before serving, sandwich meringues with lemon curd; dust with sifted icing (confectioners’) sugar, if you like.

You need a medium piping bag fitted with a 2cm fluted tube.
