Lemon Pie .. 柠檬派

Hi everyone, I hope you have a great weekend.
We are having a great weekend and my nasty cough have gone. Thanks to all for the kind concern.

I am going to share a yummy desert  that i made last week. :)  It is this delicious Lemon Pie. This is a recipe from 'Teacher Meng's book of the Sweet and the Savory PIE'

谢谢你娜娜 ^_^

The book is in Chinese and I hope my translate into English is clear and nearest to her!! I would like to thank Nana W my good friend and she is also my hubby's classmate brought this book all the way back from Taiwan for me. 

I made the for a dinner gathering at my place. My friends love the crumble and crispy crust and the smooth and tangy lemon curd. YUM!!

 LEMON PIE (柠檬派)

recipe source: 孟老师的甜派与咸派(a chinese version of Meng Lao Shi (Teacher Meng's) Sweet Pie and Savoury Pie)

Ingredients for sweet crust pastry:
120g low protein flour/ all purpose flour 
25g icing sugar
1/8 tsp salt
Sieve the above dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

65g unsalted butter (cubed it while it is cold)

Wet ingredients:
15g yolk
15g fresh milk

To do:

The pie crust is easy to prepare. It uses a rub in butter method to give the crust a nice 
crumbly and buttery taste The pie crust need to be pre-baked. While baking the pie crust, prepare the lemon curd as my last post...HERE

Cubed butter and add into flour.
Rub butter into flour until it is into bread crumbs form.
Add the liquid ingredients into the flour and mix into a dough. (do use only finger tips to mix and do not knead)
When it is form into a dough, wrapped with a piece of cling foil. Chilled in fridge for 30 minutes.

Take out the dough and roll between 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Roll into a big sheet and measure the size of the pie tray.

Leave the top plastic sheet away and paste the rolled pie crust on the the pie tray. Lightly press the rolled pie crust into position and leave the other plastic sheets away.

Trimmed the side of the rolled pie crust to fit the pie tray.

This pie crust need to be pre-bake. Place a piece of aluminiun foil on top of the uncooked pie crust.. (fix the foil onto the top neaty. I do not have pie weight nor red bean on hand so i used soy bean instead..  :p)

Bake in a preheated oven at upper heat 160C -170C and lower heat 190C - 200C for 15 minutes. ( my oven doesn't comes with the upper and lower heat adjustment so i use 180C bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and the soy bean and baked for another 5 minutes.

When the pie crust is ready, pour the ready made ahead Lemon Curd into it. Chilled in the fridge and you can have a delicious Lemon Pie :D
