Lemon Lovers and Mini Lemon Meringue Bites

I love all things lemon. The freshness of the scent, the beautiful bright color, the resemblance to the warmth of the sun, and for the palate: lemon-flavored desserts!

I really love lemon meringue pie – that tart/sweet filling, the perfect complement of lightly sweet meringue – yet I seldom make it.

So I was thrilled to make these little lemon tasty treats, and I thought they’d be perfect for Game Day coming up this Sunday (otherwise known as Super Bowl Sunday).

There are only a few ingredients, very easy to make, and a great way to get your kids in the kitchen.

Give them the task of pressing the cookie dough into the mini muffin pans and then scooping the meringue on top!


My favorite lemon curd is from Trader Joe’s, but did you know it’s actually very easy to make?

With this recipe today you’ll notice that each creamy bite is packed with serious lemon flavor.


Oh, and don’t forget to broil on “LOW.” I actually broiled my first batch on “HI” and they got a little toasty!

Enjoy!

What sweet treats will you be making for Super Bowl Sunday?

    Is it just me or did anyone else’s mouth water when they read the word lemon? LOL! Those look delish my friend.

    I too love anything lemon and we have a Meyer lemon tree so I always have them on hand. I’ll have to give this recipe a try.

    Sandy, these look amazing and I seriously cannot wait to try them. Lemon Meringue pie has been a favorite of mine since childhood. And I LOVE making citrus recipes in the winter… brings sunshine to cold winter days. Just pinned this to Pinterest and shared on Twitter… this recipe will be a keeper for sure! Thanks for sharing. Have a super start to your week…

    My tweens still love having tea parties with me. My 11 year old loves to make scones served with lemon curd. Allrecipes.com has a great easy microwave lemon curd recipe that you might like (way cheaper than the jarred curd). She would love this recipe! Thanks, Sandy!

    Oh my! Sandy, you are a woman after my own heart…or should I say stomach!!! LOL!!! I love anything with lemon. My son and I often joke that we have a tangy gene because we both love all things citrus – especially lemon.

    I have some homemade shortbread cookie dough in my freezer and am going to give these a try to serve for dessert tonight.

    Thank so much for sharing.

    Love,
    Mary

    These look amazing. I don’t have a mini tart tool. Any suggestions what I might use instead?

    Hi! I wanted to know how to store these? I want to make for a bridal shower. I was planing to make in the morning (shower at 2pm). Do i put in fridge or leave out a room temp.
    They are cute and look so good
