8 portions
  • 175 grams lard
  • 450 grams sugar, and 10 more spoons
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 250 grams self-raising flour
  • 280 milliliters Water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 200 milliliters lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons lemon zest, of 4 lemons


For the dough: Place a bowl 100 grams of butter, 150 sugar, an egg and a yolk. Beat well.
Add the grated rind of two lemons and add the flour little by little, until it forms a dough that does not stick on your hands.
Wrap with plastic wrap and take to the refrigerator for 40 minutes.
When it is removed, stretch and place on a pan (22 cm) previously greased and floured. Thoroughly pierce the dough so that it does not rise and bring to a gentle oven for 15 minutes.
Remove and let cool.
For the filling: Place in a saucepan 3 yolks, 1 egg, 10 tablespoons of sugar, 200 ml of lemon juice, 130 ml of water, grated zest of two lemons, 3 tablespoons of corn starch and 75 g of butter.
Bring the saucepan to a fire and with a hand mixer, stir constantly.
When it breaks the boil, leave 3 more minutes (without beating) and remove from heat.
When it has cooled, it is placed on the dough.
For the meringue: Place in a water bath 300 grams of sugar and 150 ml of water and keep until it forms a syrup.
On the other hand, beat 4 clear to snow.
When the egg whites have risen enough, add the syrup in the form of thread and continue stirring until it takes hard consistency.
Put in a sleeve or syringe, and decorate over the filling.
Bring to the bottom of the oven over low heat until brown (3 minutes).


If the dough is in the oven and you begin to see it rise in some places, remove it from the heat, and with a spoon, crush the dough in its place and bring it back to the oven.
