freshly squeezed lemon juice, or to taste
freshly grated lemon zest, or to taste
prepared mini graham cracker pie crusts
A great dessert when you want to serve more than one option to guests.
The lemon filling was DELICIOUS, but I couldn't get the meringue to work. We originally tripled the recipe and I was baking with kids, so I thought we made a measuring error. Made another batch for just one serving as shown and still no luck. Never got fluffy at all.
NOTE*** IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT SOGGY CRUST...BRUSH WITH EGG WHITE AND BAKE FOR A FEW MINUTES BEFORE YOU ADD FILLING....IT DOES WONDERS!
These tasted amazing! A little labor intensive but not too bad. Only thing I didn't like was that the graham cracker crust got a little soggy after the pies had been sitting for a little while. My college friends love it when I bake because I always have left-overs and they loved these as well. Will definitely be making again in the future.
great recipe! I only used one tablespoon of lemon zest and was a little skeptical about the crust staying firm after reading reviews, but it was still great two days after making the pies. They were so fantastic they didn't last long!
These are so good! I doubled the recipe, and they were gone soon after I put them out! I didn't make any changes except to use the Cream Cheese Tart Shells recipe from this site (prebaked for 10 minutes). I made the filling and put it in the shells overnight. The next day, I reheated the pies so that the filling was very hot and piped the meringue onto it. I made a raspberry sauce garnish of raspberries mixed w/ a little sugar and blended until smooth (strained out the seeds with my flour sifter).
Made these yesterday and they turned out wonderfully! I doubled the recipe to make 12 mini pies and I omitted the almond extract and it worked perfectly, they were absolutely beautiful and delicious. Will definitely make these again, thanks for sharing!!
These were tasty and very easy to make! It made a nice, individual serving!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
