While the shell is cooking, make the meringue by beating the egg whites with the cream of tarter until the mixture forms soft peaks, gradually add the sugar, beating well after each addition, until the mixture is smooth and shiny. Reheat the lemon curd, fill the hot pastry shell with hot lemon curd. Top with the meringue mixture using a fork to form decorative peaks. Bake pie in a 160C oven for 30 minutes. The meringue should be lightly coloured and crisp on the outside but still soft on the inside. Cool the pie on a wire rack until cold.
