Lemon Meringue Pie Bites are wonderfully light, refreshingly tart, and absolutely satisfying. Don’t let the fanciness fool you- these little bites of perfection are surprisingly easy to make.
Most weeks I incorporate taking recipe photos into everyday life. After all, nearly every recipe I make is meant to be enjoyed by my family. It isn’t uncommon for me to make dinner and then take photos before serving the food.
Lately, though, life has been a little crazier, and making time for photos has been tough, especially with the sun setting so early. So a few Saturdays ago I had a marathon recipe session. I made Jalapeño Popper Twice-Baked Potatoes, Lighter Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese, Crispy Baked Potato Wedges and, of course, these adorable little Lemon Meringue Pie Bites.
I knew I’d be making these as soon as I realized I had leftover lemon curd from making Baked Lemon Hand Pies, as well as leftover egg whites from making the Homemade Lemon Curd. There wasn’t quite enough curd left to make a full pie, plus these meringue nests are just too darn cute to resist.
I’m not prepared to admit how many of these guys I ate. It was a few, okay? They’re so light and airy! I got too excited and filled all the meringues, meaning they needed to be eaten that day. Looking back, I should have left some of them empty, stored them in the fridge, and then filled them to be eaten on Sunday.
Oh, well. Looks like I’ll just have to make them again!
