If you don’t feel like making pie crust, why not turn to these lemon meringue pie shooters?
By Bria Helgerson
Sometimes, you just don’t feel like making pie crust. And sometimes, just somtimes, you don’t feel like eating an entire piece of pie. So what to do then when the craving hits for a taste of lemon meringue pie? Cheat, that’s what. With the combination of homemade lemon curd and toasted italian meringue topping and crushed vanilla wafer cookies, these little bites may just hit the spot. Best of all, they are so fast to make and perfect for summer when you don’t feel like turning your oven on and heating up your entire kitchen or apartment.
These would be delicious with any type of curd, and the addition of different cookies or even crushed nuts would be a great variation.
