These Lemon Custard Filled Meringue Cups are a huge favorite around our house. A delicious, sweet, crunchy meringue shell filled with lemon custard and topped with sweetened whipped cream. They’re the perfect dessert.
Even though this Utah weather has been its normal bi-polar self, it hasn’t stopped me from pulling out my lemon recipes. So many recipes coming your way, so I apologize to any lemon haters out there.
Anyway, the first time I made these Lemon Custard Filled Meringue Cups was probably about 20 years ago (yikes!!) and it was love at first bite for all of us. I took them to a family dinner at my mom’s house and everyone went nuts over them.
Are these custard cups not just the cutest looking desserts ever?
Not only do I love lemon, but I also love sweet, crunchy meringue shells. So putting the two together is seriously a little taste of heaven.
These would be the perfect dessert for your Easter dinner this weekend.
Also if you love meringue crusts/shells like I do and you’ve never made my Schaum Torte, then you absolutely have to. It’s a meringue shell, filled with sweetened whipped cream and fresh strawberries. It’s amazing! (That would also make a perfect Easter dessert!)
I hope you all have a fabulous Easter weekend.
