Remove the pulses and the baking paper. Allow the pastry case to cool in the baking tray.

Lemon curd

Melt the butter in a pan. Mix the other ingredients together and add to the butter in the pan. Bring to the boil over a medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat when the mixture thickens and becomes creamy, continue to stir briefly.

Meringue topping

Beat the egg whites and salt until stiff. Gradually add the sugar and continue beating until the mixture turns glossy. Spoon the meringue into a piping bag with a smooth nozzle.
