You read that right – lemon brownies. You won’t miss the chocolate when tasting these dense, zesty treats. The brownies are bursting with lemon flavor, as they utilize the whole lemon. I like to see the expression on my friend’s faces when I tell them this lemon dessert is a brownie!
This one-two punch of summertime favorites – lemonade and ice cream – make the perfect frozen dessert. The creamy delight is tart yet sweet; a pie that’s sure to make you pucker.
This cake is an example of how a small amount of lemon zest adds a big punch of fresh flavor. We tasted this cake with and without the zest – everyone agreed the zest made the cake a winner!
This cake is wonderful served warm or cold, as well as simple to make. A layer of pudding and another of moist cake. Sure to be a crowd pleaser.
A cake-like cookie that’s made with whole grain pastry flour to add more fiber and lightness to these lemony delights. Top each cookie with the most delectable lemon glaze. These make beautiful gifts because they travel so well.
Our friend Maria shared this with us recently and I knew I had to add it to the list of lemon desserts. There are nice textures in this cake from the nuts to the creamy frosting. It’s a must to try!
The butter and cream cheese in this cookie makes for a delicate, thin dessert. I love the thick lemon glaze that they are dipped in. It’s a cookie unlike any other I have tasted before, but I want it again and again.
