Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Unroll pie crust onto work surface; flatten slightly with rolling pin. Using 3-inch round cutter, cut out 12 rounds. Invert mini muffin-cup pan. Place each crust round over bottom of 12 cups. Press and pinch dough to form cup. Prick bottom and sides with fork. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • 2 Place baked shells inside mini muffin cups in pan (they will not fit, but will sit toward the top and keep the crust from tipping.) Place 1 raspberry in bottom of each shell.
  • 3 In small microwavable bowl, microwave lemon curd uncovered on High 45 to 60 seconds or until hot. Stir until smooth. Spoon about 1 tablespoon lemon curd over raspberry in each cup.
  • 4 Reduce oven temperature to 350°F. In small deep bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until soft peaks form. On high speed, gradually beat in sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Spoon meringue onto hot lemon filling; spread to edge of crust to seal well and prevent shrinkage.
  • 5 Bake at 350°F 8 to 10 minutes or until meringue is light golden brown. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Refrigerate until filling is set, about 1 hour. Store in refrigerator.
