This is such an easy recipe, yet so tasty I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it before!
I really have to thank Cheese Postie, from my recent post who deliver creative toasties like these through your letter box. I was sent a strawberry shortcake flavour cheese toastie, using cookie butter and strawberry jam, plus mascarpone. I loved the flavours and it got me to thinking.
What if I used cookie butter, AKA Biscoff, AKA Speculoos, lemon curd and marshmallowy fluffy stuff? Surely this would taste just like a lemon meringue pie? I had to find out…
I bought a loaf of white bread, and the above ingredients and started to assemble. I slathered one bit of bread with the Biscoff, one side with lemon curd and then spread the mallow crème on top of the biscoff. I sandwiched the two bits of bread together and lightly coated the outsides of the bread with some butter.
At this point you could use a toastie machine, a panini press or as I did, one of those toaster bags. I popped my sandwich in the baggy and popped it in the toaster. Mines did catch a bit on one edge (think my toaster is on the fritz!), but if using a toastie machine this won’t happen.
This resulting toastie has to be left for a minute or two, as the sugar contents do heat up to near-volcanic temperatures, but once it is an edible warmth, the taste is incredible. You get the biscuit base of the pie from the Biscoff, the lemon hit from the curd and the mallow meringue in the middle. Great fun to try and enjoy!
