Pies & Tarts
Lemon meringue pie is a perfectly balanced dessert marked by swirling peaks of sweet, nearly weightless meringue atop a rich mouth-puckering filling. A few tricks are in order, however, to help prevent common mishaps, such as a soggy crust or runny filling. First, the crust must be fully blind-baked so that it gets crisp and firm. A half-butter, half-shortening crust like the one used here has a pleasantly crumbly, tender texture. (Substitute an all-butter crust, if you prefer.) The stove-top custard filling is thickened with egg yolks and cornstarch. It must come to a full boil and then cook for several minutes in order to activate the cornstarch and thicken properly.

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes
No one can resist the beauty of a cupcake, but sometimes you're not in the mood for that much sweetness. These cupcakes provide the perfect antidote by adding a tart zing to a plain old cupcake. A lot of "lemon meringue cupcakes" have you add lemon curd in the middle. However, I believe that curd is time-consuming and doesn't pack enough lemony punch. As a substitute, here we have added actual lemons that are already broiled a bit to caramelize them. It's rare when something is easier and tastes better! If you have a favorite plain cupcake recipe, you can always just stick to that as your base, but make sure to put in a bit of lemon juice to bring it all together. Click here to see Cupcakes Galore.

I have to tell you that I have never had much of a”thing” for meringues.  Light and airy, with not much too them, why not go for a richer cookie if I were going to the sweet treat route.  Well, this past holiday, my taste-buds shed a new light on my.  I tried my mother in laws traditional meringues and was not only enjoying them, but REALLY enjoying them!  This cloud like cookie turned into something way more appealing, and after 3 or 4 my sweet tooth was totally satisfied. Lo and behold, I had a whole new respect for Meringues!  I decided to take a whirl at my own, adding 2 kinds of chocolate to give it some pizazz and let me tell you how much fun I had watching the egg whites rise and peak.  This will definitely not be a holiday recipe in my house…it’s way too good!

Italian Meringue
You'll need a candy thermometer for this recipe, and it's a bit more of a challenge that the other two types of meringues, Swiss and French, since timing is of the essence, but with practice, it'll get easier. Be careful when pouring melted sugar!
