Meringue: 3 egg whites / a pinch of salt / 125gr brown sugar / 125gr icing sugar
For the dough
Mix flour and salt together. Mix the diced butter with the flour and beat by hand. Add lukewarm water and form a ball. Leave the dough to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Spread the pastry in a pie dish, cook for 15 min at 180°C.
For the lemon cream
Mix sugar and egg yolks together. Then add the zest of 2 lemons and their juices. Finish by adding cream and flour and mix well. Pour the cream over the pre-cooked tart and bake for another 20 min at 180°C.

Beat the egg whites until they are stiff, add the brown sugar and continue to beat. Once done, add icing sugar using a spatula and blend nicely. Place the meringue in a pastry bag and decorate the pie with it.
