Mini Lemon Meringue Pies Recipe

Lemon meringue pie is my ALL TIME favorite pie EVER.  We were invited to a soiree where I had to bring an easy to serve dessert – so mini pies it was!  Typically I do a mini Chocolate Chess Pie but I was looking for something a bit different..  Easy!

Use my lemon filling on top of mini pastry rounds!

I used 2 store bought crusts, used a round cookie cutter, put them in the pie pan and placed hot filling on top – along with the meringue.  Then I baked per the recipe to brown the meringue. Done!

EASY!
