Lemon Meringue Pie Cookie Bites

I so do love a good slice of lemon meringue pie.

Actually, any type of lemon dessert has risen to the top of my favorite desserts in the last few years.
Sadly, making an actual lemon meringue pie is something that has not come easy to me.Several attempts have been made and each has failed miserably.

My meringue top is not the problem. It’s the filling. It never seems to work out correctly. I either have a soupy mess or something resembling overly-firm Jell-O.

Ugh. Frustration.

I will just have to keep trying and am hoping to to get it right soon. Practice,practice,practice.
