I love both and as a kid,would often help my mum make these yummy treats. However, I discovered I am allergic to eggs and I have not had these since I was 23!! Little wonder I was so ill all of my life....we lived on eggs!!! I DO miss them immensely,but it is a matter of me liking them ,but them not liking ME!!!
I think my problem was that in those days this allergy was unknown so I just kept on loving and eating eggs, with everyone telling us how good they were for us!!! So I had a total overload!!! Nowadays so much more is known about allergies, and I do feel that being diagnosed so young, there is a very good hope that your daughter shall indeed outgrow her allergy. Oh! I do hope so, with so many wonderful dishes requiring eggs as an ingredient!! Good luck to all of you!
Lemon Meringue pie.(for me is the winner).
My wife saves egg whites in the freezer and when she has sufficient will make a lemon meringue pie.
The combination of sweet meringue topping on the slightly tart lemon (flavour adjusted by adding sugar until the lemon is just tart) makes for a great combination.
I think lemon is just the right flavour and beats lime anyday.
One tried I am certain people will agree.
The pastry has to be a high quality as it plays a distinct part of the combination.
i love anything with pastry however have not found a cafe bought lemon meringue pie to equal my mum's. They are usually too sweet and I don't like the consistency of the lemon filling which seem to be thickened with cornflour.
Lemon meringue pie is now also far to sweet for me. I did discover a Key Lime Pie, (or was it a Tart?) in Aldi's recently, in the dessert/freezer section, & that's very nice. I can't cook pies myself, as our oven doesn't work.
