Lemon Meringue Pie

During our last visit in Italy we got some amazing lemons straight from the tree! I had to find a decent recipe to celebrate it. :P
The French Tarte au citron meringuée combines delicious lemon cream topped with sweet, soft meringue. Surprisingly simple to prepare!

for 2 little tartes you will need:
♥ 1 little lemon
♥ 2 tablespoons homemade vanilla sugar
♥ 1 egg
♥ 40g butter
meringue:
♥ 1 egg white
♥ 25g homemade vanilla sugar
base:
♥  75g flour (1 glass)
♥  35g butter
♥  1 egg yellow

1. Start with the lemon cream because it will need some time to cool down.
In a saucepan melt the butter with the lemon juice. In a meantime, in another bowl, beat the egg with sugar until they get a bit whiter.
Add melted butter to the bowl, mix well and transfer back to the saucepan. Bring to the boil. Put the heat down and keep boil for 2-3min while stirring all the time. Put on the side to cool down a bit.

5. Using a brulee torch darken it a little bit. (You can also put it in the very hot oven for 1-2min.)
