Dear friends, I bring you little pieces of sunshine in the shape of meringues! Don’t they look like summer on a plate?

This treat is super easy to make and requires VERY little (and very low temp) baking time, that way you won’t sweat your face off while making them. I love apricots on anything, and right now you can find some very lovely ones at the farmers market, I find it’s a super short window of opportunity so we better make the most of it. The sweetness of the apris (totally made that word now) goes SO WELL with the tartness of the lemon and the fragrant touch of basil. I used lemon basil (which I also got from the farmers market) but thai basil can work too.

Bonus points: This curd doesn’t use egg to thicken, too much egg in the whites already. Instead I used cornstarch which works just as well.

If you want to go the extra mile, serve with a side of vanilla ice cream! Now, let’s get baked, mmkay?
