Lemon Cups

Lemon Cups created by NoraMarie

This is a lemony, light-tasting dessert. Looks great, so it's good enough for guests. It separates into two layers, with a creamy custard on the bottom and light as air cake on the top.

    I made this for a dinner party and it won rave reviews. It is a very light ending with a perfect lemony flavor. I made them early in the day, not finishing the last 10 minutes of cooking time until right before they were served. I could not have picked a better dessert for a big meal.

    These are very popular in my family. My mom has been making them for years and we all love them. They are very lemony and the meringue-like topping is fantastic.
