Here's a way to have the refreshing flavor of lemon meringue pie in a hand-held cookie. The meringue base is filled with homemade lemon curd. They are a melt-in-your mouth heavenly delight. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
I bake cookies all year long, so my friends and family call me the "Cookie Lady"! Whenever I bake these for Christmas, I make three batches...one to keep at home for my husband and two to give as gifts.
I have had this recipe for about 40 years, and in that time I've made a few changes. These cookies are my husband's favorite, so I bake them for him almost every week.
One of my daughter's friends still remembers having these special treats when she stopped in on her way home from school.
