Lemon Meringue Kisses

meringue kisses

Hello Everyone,

As you know, I am a keen cupcake baker, but sometimes I fancy a change. I recently purchased a lovely baking book by Peggy Porschen called Boutique Baking. She has recipes for the most beautiful bakes, including these deliciously delicate meringue kisses. The original recipe call for vanilla as a flavouring, but I changed it to lemon to make them a little more refreshing for the Summer.


My meringue kisses are by no means perfect in shape or size, but they taste so yummy and I’m sure I’ll be baking them again soon which gives me plenty of opportunity to perfect them.

Inspired by vintage sweets shops I popped these sweet treats into a glass sweet jar and think they look very cute!


Let me know what you think.
