Do you love lemon meringue pie but find a whole slice is too much? These easy mini lemon meringue pie cookie cups will be perfect!

I've included both a gluten-free cookie recipe for the cookie cups and a non-gluten-free version. Make sure you look at the right recipe.

They are perfect for brunch, baby showers, individual desserts, birthday parties, holidays, and anytime you don't want to eat a whole pie, and just want a taste. I kind of like to call the cheater lemon meringue mini-pies because there are so many baking hacks you can use.

This recipe could easily be three-ingredient mini lemon meringue pies if you use a package of sugar cookie dough, store-bought lemon curd, and marshmallow fluff. How easy is that?!

  1. Thank you for making a gluten free version! It looks delicious! I just recently found out about marshmallow fluff. It seems like such a funny thing to buy in a jar.
