About 200g biscuits (I used a mix of digestives and ginger nuts)
50g Sugar
35g Cornflour
2 unwaxed Lemons
Boiling water

For the "meringue" bit (more like Dream Topping)
250ml soya milk
35g cornflour
60g vegan margarine
30g sugar

Crush biscuits and mix in enough margarine so they start to clump together (I used a food processor to do this). Press into your pie dish to give about a 1cm thickness all around. Bake in a medium oven for about 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.

Finely grate lemon zest from both lemons then juice them. Top juice up to 500ml with boiling water, combine with zest and heat in saucepan until nearly boiling.

Meanwhile mix 35g cornflour with 50g sugar to a smooth paste with a little cold water. Pour hot lemon mix over the paste, stir and return to the pan.

Stir in one tablespoon of margarine. Bring to the boil stirring all the time until it thickens nicely and all the margarine is incorporated. Check sweetness and add sugar as necessary.

Pour into base, and set aside to cool.

To make the topping:
Blend the cornflour with a little of the soya milk to a smooth paste. Warm the rest of the soya milk in a pan. Pour the warm soya milk into the paste and return to the pan. Heat and stir continuously until thickened. Set aside to cool.

When that has cooled, cream the margarine and sugar together until pale in colour, then beat in the cooled cornflour mixture a little at a time. Add the vanilla essence.

Pile the topping onto the cooled pie and chill in the refrigerator.

I this today, didn't think the kids would like it too much, pleased to say they loved it, i didn't use the vegan ingrediants or the soya milk, but it was truely wonderful and the kids just loved it. So thank you very much for that, can't wait to see what else you come up with. I think this may become a family favorite.
