How to make it:

Preheat oven to 190°C. Place tart cases on a baking tray. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden. Cool.

Fill each tart case with 1 tablespoon of lemon curd.

With an electric whisk, beat 3 egg whites until soft peaks form.  Gradually add sugar until dissolved and beat until mixture is thick and glossy.

Place meringue mixture into a piping bag with a star nozzle and pipe onto each tart.

Increase your oven temperature to 220°C and put grill function on.

Place the tarts in the oven.  Bake until the meringue is lightly browned along the edges.  The time will vary between different ovens, so keep a close eye on them.

*TIP:  If you have any left-over egg white mixture, use this to make meringues.
