Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    How-To: If you only have one 12-cup mini muffin pan, shape all of the dough into balls. Fill the pan and cover the remaining balls to keep them from drying out. After baking, cool the muffin pan completely before refilling it with dough.
  • Tip 2
    Purchasing: Find lemon curd next to the jams and jellies at the supermarket. You might like to try lime or raspberry curd.
  • Tip 3
    Substitution: Betty Crocker® whipped cream cheese frosting can be used for the fluffy white.
