…..Hestons lemon pie is another recipe that takes hours
from the starting of the pastry till the cutting of the pie took about seven hours

no ordinary pastry…..egg yolks, icing sugar, lemon zest, flour, vanilla

now chill for 1 hour, roll out between baking parchment then freeze for 30 mins

bake blind for 20 mins

nine eggs and one yolk

zest and juice 6 lemons

cream, sugar and lemon zest

stir constantly untill mix reaches 62 degrees

pour into warmed pastry case and cook untill mixture reaches 70 degrees

allow to cool then dredge with icing sugar

remove from ring

the texture is amazing it almost melts as you bite into it….
Heston you are a genius

this is how it looks in the book..with back lighting and a blowtorch to caramalize the topping

What a fantastic set of photos! You have done an amazing job with this recipe Steve! Looks like quite an ambitious dish to make, but oh so wonderful to eat!......
BTW....Your shot of the pie wedge is much better than the book!

Seven hours to create, one minute to eat!
I haven't had my breakfast yet, and I am salivating all over the keyboard.
