Pastry crust smothered in citrus lemon filling and topped with a coconut meringue and all for a Weightwatchers Pro Points Value of 4. 

This is heaven and although its not a particularly Irish dish Mother's Day is this Sunday and by Sunday we all possibly be Irish'd out so i thought as a treat for all those mammy's that's on a Weightwatchers friendly diet, this would be perfect. 

My mother actually had it and said it was delicious and she is picky about her cakes and pies. 

So i also said that i would match a song for each recipe this week so i went for this classic 80's from Heaven 17 "Temptation"
