More About This Recipe
  • If you love the flavor of lemon meringue pie, but not the fuss of making one or slicing one, then these little treats are perfect for you.

    With each bite you'll enjoy the crispy crunch of flaky pie crust and a pop of tart lemon flavor balanced with the sweetness of marshmallow and cream.

    Bring these individually sized desserts to a party and everyone can just grab one. No one is stuck slicing a pie and cleaning up the mess.

    They are quick and easy to make too, so let's get to it.

    Grab 8 metal cannoli forms and spray them with cooking spray. If you don't have any, you can find them for a few bucks at a kitchen supply or home goods store.

    Once you have them ready, you can unroll your pie dough and cut four circles using a 4 1/2 inch round cookie cutter. Don't, have the cutter? Just find a bowl that's close to that size, set it upside down on the dough, and cut out around it.

    Then wrap the pie dough circle around the cannoli forms, sealing the edges with a bit of egg wash. Place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and pop them in the freezer.

    It's a good idea to let the dough chill out before it goes into the oven.

    Bake them until they are nice and golden brown then let them cool a bit before sliding them off the metal cannoli forms, which are really hot, by the way, so use tongs or hold them with oven mitts.

    Once the pie crust cannoli shells have cooled, you can pipe in the lemon meringue pie filling. Sprinkle on some lemon zest if you want to punch up the flavor and add a bit of color contrast to the pale yellow filling.

    Enjoy.
