A different take on Lemon Meringue Pie made with luscious strawberries! The filling is like a strawberry curd - delicious!
Put flour, icing sugar mixture, butter and zest in a food processor until they resemble breadcrumbs.
Add yolk and 1 tablespoon of the water
Process again until pastry begins to come together into a ball.
If necessary, gradually add more water, a teaspoon at a time, until pastry does form a ball.
Knead briefly on a lightly floured work surface until smooth.
Shape into a flat disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 220°C or 200°C fan-forced. Roll out pastry between 2 sheets baking paper until 3mm thick.
Press pastry into 24cm loose bottomed flan tin.
Trim edges and prick base using a fork. Line with baking paper and fill with dried beans, lentils or baking beads.
Bake in preheated oven 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove paper and beans; return to oven.
Bake a further 5 minutes or until pastry is lightly golden brown all over base.
Allow to cool.
Thoroughly wash strawberries and remove stems. Place strawberries in a pot, cook and stir over medium heat until strawberries have broken down into a sauce.
Set aside and allow to cool.
Add 3/4 cup of sugar and the cornflour to strawberries.
Cook over medium/high heat until mixture boils and thickens.
Whisk the egg yolks.
Add about 1/3 of the hot strawberry mixture to the egg yolks, whisk to combine, then add this back to the remaining strawberry mixture in the saucepan, stirring all the while.
Continue stirring as you cook the mixture over medium heat for an additional two minutes.
Add the butter and lemon juice, stirring until butter is melted, then remove from heat. Pour filling into pie crust.
Whisk the egg whites til stiff.
Gradually add the cup of sugar in stages making sure it's all combined and not grainy.
Spread over strawberry filling, making sure the meringue is spread right to the edges so it doesn't "leak"
Bake in a 220 C oven for 15 mins or til browned ontop
This would work really well with raspberries as well or even rhubarb in there.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
