Lemon Merangue Minis - NEW by Joelyn & Mya, inspired by Cindy

Cindy (my sister) made Lemon Merangues for Thanksgiving and put Lemon Curd between 2 of them. So I wanted to take that and make something similar with a "pie" taste to it.

So Mya & I came up with these and they ROCK!

preheat oven to 325

beat 2 egg whites until foamy
(I use powdered egg whites + water because they ALWAYS work perfectly)

add pinch of salt
2 pinch cream of tarter

beat until stiff (lifting the beater up should result in peak holding its shape)

slowly add 2/3 Cups + 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar while beating the mixture (don't over beat)

turn oven OFF

drop teaspoon size (or small cookie scoop size) onto parchment paper
put in the warm oven for a few hours.

once cooled
spread Lemon Curd (Trader Joes makes a good one)
on the bottom of the merangues
dip bottoms in graham cracker crumbs to keep curd from sticking to things
