Today we are celebrating! Celebrating a baby and honestly, there’s nothing I love to celebrate more than that :)  My dear friend Stephanie gave birth to the MOST gorgeous baby boy just two weeks ago and it’s time we had a baby shower – don’t ya think?  A few of us (and by few, I mean FOURTEEN) got together to throw Stephanie the world’s greatest virtual baby shower and guess what I’m bringing???

Lemon Meringue Cookie Cups!  Now you guys didn’t think I just made up that microwave lemon curd the other day just so I could sit there and lick the spoon did ya?  (I only did that a few times…) No! I made up these pretty little cookie cups aaand then licked my fingers to make sure I got all that amazing lemon curd off of them! (I happen to be a HUGE LOVER of all things lemon – I hope you are too!)

These babies are the best thing I’ve made this year.  Hands down.  And that’s not the citrus binger talking either.

To make these sweet treats, you’re going to need a mini muffin pan – don’t worry, you’ll find yourself using it again and again for all sorts of fun goodies!

I’m not the only one celebrating Stephanie’s sweet little baby today! Make sure to go check out all the other baby shower treats!

Lemon Meringue Cookie Cups
  • 1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup lemon curd (make your own in the microwave!)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 Tbls granulated sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Coat a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cookie dough and all purpose flour. Knead together until well blended.
  4. Shape dough into one inch balls. Press cookie dough in bottom and up the sides of each muffin cup, forming cup shape.
  5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are just starting to turn golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for at least ten minutes before gently twisting to remove from pan. Place on rack and let cool completely.
  7. Whip egg whites in a mixer bowl until foamy. Add sugar one tablespoon at a time, continuing to whip until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  8. Spoon lemon curd into cups. (If necessary, press the center of the cups down with your thumb before spooning in curd to create more space.)
  9. Drop one tablespoon of meringue on top of the curd in each cup.
  10. Place cups on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and place under the broiler just until tips of meringue start to show color. Remove immediately. (Watch these constantly. My broiler took 15 seconds to brown the meringue.)
  11. Let cool for a few minutes before serving or store in refrigerator until ready.

  40. Love this!
    how many this recipe makes?

  41. Nancy Fernau says:

    can I use regular size muffin pan instead?

  42. Shelley says:

    Hi Trish. Love your recipes and have been following you for some time. I notice that several times you have used Pilsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough. We can’t get this in my area. I made your fruit caps and used Pilsbury Easter cookie dough as we only get the holiday sugar cookies. They were awesome.
    My question is what can I use as a ‘crust’ instead of the Pilsbury. I have a feeling if I made a batch of sugar cookies, they would crumble at the first bite. any suggestions?
