Lemon Meringue Parfaits
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
5-6 parfaits


Lemon Curd

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 egg yolks (save 4 of the whites for meringue)
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • Pinch salt



  1. Prepare lemon curd: In a medium-sized bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Beat in eggs, egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt until combined. Pour mixture into a saucepan and heat on low, stirring frequently until thickened, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  2. Prepare meringue: Add 1-inch water to a pot and bring to a simmer. Whisk all ingredients together in a heat-safe bowl. Place bowl on top of simmering water and whisk for about 3-5 minutes until egg mixture is warm to the touch. Transfer bowl to stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment and beat mixture until thick, glossy, stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla.
  3. Place 1-2 tablespoons of crushed graham crackers in the bottom of each glass. Start with lemon curd and place 1-2 tablespoons on top of graham cracker layer. Add 1-2 tablespoons of meringue. Repeat with lemon curd. Finish with meringue all the way to the top. Optional: Toast top of each parfait with a culinary torch.
  4. Tip for assembling: Spoon lemon curd and meringue in two separate plastic bags and snip a corner off to pipe into each glass.
