With the weather warming up I am ALL about lemon anything. I love lemon in my drinks, lemon in my food and lemon in my dessert…lemon anything!!
They are just so cute!
There is just something about cute little desserts. It is even better when they are little lemon desserts.
I have always been a fan of making desserts or muffins in my mini muffin pans, but these are definately one of my favorites so far. The cookie crust adds a bit of sweetness to the tartness of the lemon making each bite just perfect!
They are just so pretty!
Not only are they cute, but they are pretty. The bright yellow color is perfect way to celebrate everything Spring and Summer. I am big fan of lemon desserts year round, but especially in the spring and summer, and these little tart cookies are a must make.
They are like a bit of sunshine on your plate.
To Meringue or Not?
I am a BIG, BIG Meringue fan. I love it on my pie, on my tarts or as little cookies. My mom though is not a fan at all. To make us both happy I made some of the tart cookies with meringue and some with just a dash of powdered sugar.
Now don’t let the idea of making meringue scare you. The way I make it is super quick and easy. You just whip the egg whites you have left over from the lemon filling, and then add in some sugar and you are DONE. Yep, that’s it, just 2 ingredients…egg whites and sugar, that’s all.
Just look how good it looks!! And even better it was SOOOO easy!!
Tarts for everyone
These sweet treats are the perfect little afternoon bite. They are one of our favorite desserts and I am sure they will be yours as well.
