Some dessert recipes have the power to bring us back to childhood, a favorite place or a special time. These "Lemon Meringue cupcakes," do exactly that for me, reminding me of my mothers homemade lemon meringue pie. There are memories that can be triggered so easily, by a smell, a song, a sound or even the foods that we eat. It is so amazing that a scent or flavour of lemon, can remind us of the lemon meringue pie that our mom used to make. These things are stored in a special place in our minds and it is how we store our memories, through our senses. We have so many good sensory memories stored away in us, the smell of rain, laundry drying, the smell of roses, the sound of the birds chirping, can all make us feel a certain way, or help us to remember certain things in our lives. What a magical ability to have!
I have to say nothing else compares to my moms lemon meringue pie, as most of the lemon meringue pies you find in supermarkets are not homemade. They are not bad, but they also don't really compare to the pies that our moms made, fresh at home. So, when I saw this recipe I couldn't help but be inspired and reminded of my mother's amazing lemon meringue pies. These lemon meringue cupcakes are just like lemon meringue pie, in a cupcake version. Plus, you get the perfect serving every time! You will want to prepare your lemon filling recipe first with egg yolks (reserving the whites for the meringue recipe), sugar, flour, lemon juice, and water. The cupcake filling part of the recipe calls for butter, sugar, eggs, baking powder and flour. Lastly the meringue part of the recipe uses the reserved egg white mixture, sugar and a pinch of salt. These cupcakes will remind you so much of the pie that you loved having when you were young, on a nice summer's afternoon! Anyone who tries these, will love them so much too! This recipe is guaranteed to bring smiles to the faces of many.
