Lemon-Strawberry pie

As promised …

The pie was a huge success so here’s the recipe – all in all, only about 1 tablespoon of honey to sweeten it.


  • 200 g ground almonds
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 50 g melted butter or coconut oil
  1. Mix all together and press the dough into a baking pan, including up the sides.
  2. Bake in 175 C for 20-25 mins or till done.
  3. Let cool.

Lemon curd:

  • 200 ml lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (30-35 g) honey
  • 6 eggs
  • 100 g butter or coconut oil
  1. Beat eggs and honey a little.
  2. Add the lemon juice and put over a double boiler.
  3. Continue to whip the curd until it starts to thicken.
  4. Remove from the heat and then add the fat while mixing.
  5. Let cool a little and then pour the curd into the crust.

Decorate with fresh strawberries cut in halves.

Oh, and the curd can of course be used for a lemon-meringue pie, or eaten by itself as a lemon pudding.
