Kid Friendly Desserts

Who doesn’t love a bite sized, kid-friendly dessert? Check out these simple and easy snacks that you and your kids can pop into the oven, and into your mouths!

Mini Cherry Lemon Meringue Pies

This is the perfect kid sized dessert. They are fun, colorful, and simple to pop into your mouth. The cups are baked first, followed by the delicious lemon filling. Once completed, be sure to let them cool for at least two hours, or until the filling has set. This makes about 12 mini pies.

Cooking spray

1 5 -ounce container vanilla meringue cookies (about 24 cookies)

6 tablespoons cake flour

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling:

1/2 cup sugar,  2 1/4 cups prepared lemonade

2 large egg yolks

Whipped cream, for topping (optional)
