Dessert for Sunday, April 10, 2011

I have been craving Lemon Meringue Pie since my birthday in February.  I kept putting off making one and even thought about just buying one.  But on Sunday I made a pie and some mini pies.  Originally I was only going to make the mini's but there was so much filling left in the pan I had to quickly bake another shell and put it in.  To make the mini's I took a mini muffin pan and cut the pie crust using a small circle cutter and pressed the crust into the mini pan.  I baked the mini shells for 5 minutes, let them cool then filled with about a Tablespoon of filling.  I just added the meringue with a spoon.  Mmm, so glad to have satisfied that craving.

  1. That looks very nice! :o Love the mini versions too. I've been craving apple pie (since, um, forever and 5 days after!), but pies scare me... maybe I'll start with simpler, smaller, fool-proof desserts first.

  2. Apple pie is pretty full proof if you buy a crust... I just dump in apples, sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and dot with butter. It gets baked for an hour or so and it's delicious!
