Mix the biscuits with the butter. Spray the inside of each jar with cooking spray. Spoon some biscuit filling into each and press lightly.

Filling:

Beat the condensed milk, lemon and lime juice, grated rind and egg yolks together in a bowl until the mixture is thick. Divide mixture between the glass jars.

In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites with a large pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add the castor sugar and the icing sugar. Beat until stiff. Spoon into each jar.

Place the jars on a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 120°C and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or until the meringue is golden.
