NB:  To achieve the perfect set (and cut) we recommend that the internal 'core' temperature of your filling bubbles and reaches 90°C during baking and this can be achieved by baking at 180°C to 190°C for 20 to 25 minutes for a 180mm x 35mm pie shell. (Alternatively the filling can be brought to boiling point and poured into a pre-baked shell and then chilled before cutting).

Pipe the boiled Barker's Lime Hotsett® Filling into the baked pastry cases.

Allow to set in the refrigerator.

Pipe the Honey Italian Meringue on top of the set Barker's Lime Hotsett® Filling and decorate as desired.
