Creative Cookie!



Ah, the winter, what can one say about that…fluffy blankets and even fluffier 
scarves, warm cuddles on the couch in front of a toasty fire, hearty soups and 
Lemon meringue….
YES, I said Lemon Meringue……hehehehe….comfort food 
(high in “yummiestness” and high in sugar).

This recipe is quick, easy and pretty much fool proof.  So if you have never attempted 
to make Lemon Meringue, give it a go….
REALLY, WHAT’S THE WORST THAT CAN HAPPEN!!?



Ingredients:
1 packet Tennis biscuits
1 tin Condensed milk
2 eggs
125ml (½ cup) Lemon juice
150g Butter (You could use Margarine, but WHY?) 
¼ Cup (60ml) Castor sugar



Method:

1. Melt the Butter.
2. Crush the Tennis biscuits until finely crumbled
(I put them in a plastic bag and give them a 
good whack with the rolling pin, 
but you could use the food processor also) 
and add the melted butter
3. Press into pie dish (using your fingers) and place in the fridge.
4. Pour whole tin of condensed milk into a mixing bowl.
5. Separate the eggs and add the yolks to 
the condensed milk and stir till well blended.
6. Add lemon juice and stir until it thickens.
7. Pour over the biscuit crust.
8. Combine the egg whites and castor sugar 
and beat until stiff (+/-15 minutes).
9. Pour it over the lemon curd.
10. Bake at 140°C for 30 – 40 minutes 
or until meringue is lightly browned.






Hints and Tips



1. The reason you need to stir the ingredients for the curd, is simply 
because mixing it with an electric mixer 
will put too much air into it.  Not what we want for curd.  

2. Everybody does their meringue mixing differently.  
Personally, I mix the meringue until 
before peaking, only then add sugar and mix stiff.  

3. For lovely white meringue, you can add just a splash (2 ml) of lemon juice.


4. If you like a high meringue on your 
Lemon Meringue, then add as many egg whites as you 
want with 30ml Castor Sugar added for each egg white.  
Personally, I suffer with a small case 
of CDO (OCD Alphabetically) and like the layers to be equal in size… ;-)

THE ROAR

Dis lanklaas wat 'n fliek my so opgewonde gehad het dat ek my man wil afvlieg om die uitsending in George te gaan kyk. Die fliek waarvan ek praat is THE ROAR, 'n Frans Cronjé film, wat ek onlangs in Pretoria met die vertoning daar gaan kyk het vir resensie doeleindes. Die film stem so wonderlik ooreen met Nasie se leuse en hartklop...
Die hele fliek gaan daaroor om uit te vind wat jou lewensdoel is, dit raak te sien en om dit te bereik. Spreker, Gustav Gous was ook daar gewees. Hy praat gereeld oor lewensdoel en sy insprake was vir my baie spesiaal gewees. Hy het gesê mense dink hulle het net een doel, maar ons het eintlik ten minste 9 doele wat God vir ons elkeen uniek gemaak/gegee het. Dit was vir my 'n baie lekker ervaring en veral om te sien hoe opgewonde Frans Cronjé is oor hierdie film!
The Roar vorm deel van 3 verskillende films onder die Purpose Campaign. 6 Below wys reeds by lokette, The Roar en Victor is die ander twee en word die 2de Maart en die 13de April bekend…

1.Wanneer het jy jou passie om met klei/keramiek as medium te werk ontdek?
Ek is die jaar na matriek as Rotariër uitruilstudent na Australië. Dit was in 1984. Die skool in Australië het geweier om op daardie stadium ’n “wit” Suid Afrikaner in die skool in te neem. Die enigste tersiëre instansie wat bereid was om my te onderrig was die plaaslike technikon en ook net die kunsdepartement! So ek was baie gelukkig om heeltemal toevallig vir ’n jaar lank ’n diploma in keramiek te kon doen. Die medium het my perfek gepas. Ek het teruggekom en kunsonderwys op Stellenbosch studeer. Op Stellenbosch was ’n wonderlike dosent in keramiek, David Steele, wat my liefde vir klei verder aangemoedig en ontwikkel het.

2. Wat inspireer meeste van jou werk?

Die klei self is die sterkste inspirasie. Klei is ’n wonderlike medium. Wanneer ek met die klei werk is ek baie bewus van die proses. Hie…
