A meringue pie is always a great dessert on a warm summer night. Made with a cookie crust, this meringue pie put its own unique twist on the traditional meringue pie, employing the sweet citrusy flavor of orange. Best made in a springform pan for easy removal after baking.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams digestive biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons oats
  • 80 grams butter
  • 100 grams condensed milk
  • 4 oranges
  • 1 juice
  • 5 eggs yolks (and whites separated)
  • 150 grams sugar
  • fine salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Grind the biscuits to crumbs in the blender.
  3. Add the oats and butter in small cubes.
  4. Mix with fingertips until obtaining a thick sandy dough.
  5. Place the dough in a spring-form cake pan.
  6. Spread and press down in order to get a consistent basis, but thin, and covering the entire base and a bit of the sides.
  7. Then, beat the egg yolks with the condensed milk, and add the orange juice and zest.
  8. Pour this mixture into the base of the pie and bake about 15 minutes.
  9. When the time is almost over, whisk the egg whites until firm, sprinkling with a little fine salt.
  10. When they begin to get foamy, start adding the sugar, little by little until they get very white and very firm.
  11. Remove the pie from the oven (keep it on, but lower the temperature a bit) and cover the filling with the egg whites in spoonfuls.
  12. Put back in the oven, and bake until the egg whites are golden, about 10 minutes.
  13. When golden, remove from oven, and wait for it to cool a bit.
  14. Unmold.

This one takes a little work to get this perfect, but it is well worth it. If you're looking for a different citrus to use for a meringue pie, definitely give this orange recipe a try. It is soft and creamy with a nice amount of orange taste. A perfect balance for a sweet and sour pie. The digestive biscuit makes a great crust that neutralizes the filling.
