Passover lemon torte

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 \N Eggs; whole
3 \N Egg yolks
½ cup Lemon juice or zest of whole lemon
1½ cup Sugar
6 \N Egg whites; divided
2 packs Bought mandel bread or 2 lbs. recipe mandel bread
3 tablespoons Melted margarine

Base: Crumble mandel bread finely (processor) and combine with melted margarine. Line bottom and sides of 8 to 8-½ inch spring form pan and press down for a firm crust. (You can also use a bigger (10") spring form pan but in that case, you must double the filling recipe) Filling: Double boiler: Combine whole eggs, egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon zest and 1-¼ cups sugar. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and allow to cool (cover tightly with plastic wrap, pressing wrap on surface of custard). In a separate bowl, beat 3 egg whites until foamy, add 3 Tbsp. sugar, and beat until stiff. Fold into cooled lemon custard mixture. Pour lemon mixture into prepared pan. Freeze at least 5 hours or overnight. In a clean bowl, beat 3 egg whites until foamy.

Add 1 Tbsp. sugar. Beat until stiff. Pour meringue over frozen lemon mixture in pan, broil until golden (this will brown quickly, so watch carefully). Return to freezer. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
