A Personal Lemon Meringue Pie

Just a couple of days ago I shared a personal chocolate chip cookie that you could make in no time flat and eat all on your own... How about a lemon meringue pie that you could have all to yourself and not feel guilty? The perfect little bit of lemon meringue pie. Sign me up! I saw this idea on and knew I had to give it a try. I actually already had this yummy lemon curd in the refrigerator. All I need was to pick up some pastry shells and voila!... lemon meringue pie in just a few minutes. You could make a bunch of these as an easy, yet sophisticated dessert for your next party.


A Personal Lemon Meringue Pie
1 box pre-made mini philo cups
1 cup lemon curd (store bought is fine)
1 egg
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Place pastry cups on a baking sheet. Fill each cup with about 2 teaspoons lemon curd.


In a small bowl, whip the egg white using an electric mixer until foamy. Slowly add the sugar and whip on high speed until stiff peaks form.

Place meringue in a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip (or you can use a ziplock bag with a corner cut off). Pipe some meringue on top of each curd-filled pastry cup. Bake for about 7 minutes (or until the meringue is lightly browned. Cool and chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
