Clarion County Recipe of the Day: Lemon Meringue Muffins
Who doesn’t enjoy a refreshing bite out of a lemon dessert?!
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup sugar, divided
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 large egg whites
-Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter, and 2/3 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in yogurt, lemon juice, zest, and extract.
-In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add to creamed mixture; stir just until moistened. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake 17-19 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven. Increase oven setting to 400°.
-Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high after each addition until sugar is dissolved. Continue beating until stiff glossy peaks form.
-Spread or pipe the meringue onto muffins. Bake 6-8 minutes longer or until meringue is golden brown.
Cool 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
