Welcome to another edition of Taste of Home Tuesday!
This week I have a special treat for you! A decadent, lemony dessert that gets your taste buds dancing with every bite!
A version of lemon meringue pie, this Lemon Meringue Dessert is baked in ramekins, eliminating the need for a crust!
Lemon is probably tied with caramel for my favorite flavors when it comes to dessert recipes! If you have a chance to check out my recipe index you are sure to find plenty of lemon desserts!
I think of lemon as a happy flavor. Done just right it gives you a bit of a tangy kick right along with a drop of sweetness.
The lemon curd base was easy to prepare on the stove top, and after swirling on the meringue only took 15 minutes in the oven to get a golden finish on top!
Since I am more of a lemon lover than a meringue lover, I swirled on only a thin coating of meringue. Just enough to make sure the surface was covered well all the way to the edges!
What I love about this Lemon Meringue Dessert recipe is that without the crust it actually makes for a bit of a healthier dessert by cutting the calories and fat. But, you still get that tangy lemon bite and smooth finish of meringue!
