This makes 6 unique and delicious lemon desserts. They are a wonderfully cute, very lemony, and a delicious dessert. However, we would change a few of the amounts as follows: 3 lemons and using the juice of two, 1/3 cup sugar (in filling), and 1 lg egg white which makes plenty of meringue. This recipe is absolutely divine, and if you love lemons as we do, it is a must try! Thanks Marra, for another keeper. :)
