A friend was giving lemons away this morning, so it seems like a good time to share this recipe. The filling is a coconut lemon curd and sounds yummy. I also like the idea that you can freeze any leftovers, if there are any that is!!
This could be a good one for the vegetarians. If you cheated and used store bought pastry instead of making your own, this would be a really quick and easy pie to make.
These are change from the more traditional lemon curd tarts. The meringue topping combined with the orange curd makes a great combination.
Finding things that are easy to make, taste good cold and are transportable for a picnic is always a challenge. Homemade pasties have always been a family favourite with us. I think this recipe which adds a little curry and fruit to the traditional flavour is a bit of a winner.
Personally I’m not mad about tinned strawberries, they always seem to be too mushy, despite that this recipe looks interesting. I think it would work with fresh or frozen strawberries which are a lot firmer. I’d try it with blueberries as well.
A nice hearty pie for a cold night?? You could easily cheat and used bought pastry and frozen blueberries, which would make it pretty quick and easy to make.
My father’s all time favourite. When I found this recipe in Mum’s collection I was instantly reminded of him. Sadly, they seem to have gone out of fashion and you don’t see them very often in cake shops or in cafes, maybe they’ll make a comeback one day. Dad really loved them.
