This lavish strawberry and lemon pudding recipe is a delicious dessert item to serve that showcases the popular meringue sugar cookies in an upscale new format. Instead of adding the cookies in the shapes of peaks, this recipe turns the meringues into sleek cigars making them ideal for dipping into the pudding.
The citrusy lemon pudding features a mixture of lemon curd and whipped cream that is then topped with fresh strawberries. To serve, the dessert is accompanied with a sweet homemade meringue cigar that presents the sugary egg white cookie as a stick rather than a triangular peak. The sticks are then rolled in crushed unsalted pistachios for add texture and crunch and served directly in the bowl of pudding.
