Microwave Lemon Curd
This is a delectable lemon curd recipe with the added attraction of being quick and easy to make. It is particularly useful when entertaining and short on time.
Gluten-Free Raspberry Lemon Cake
Healthy raspberry lemon cake made with tart lemon juice, Greek yogurt, rings of sweet raspberries and no refined sugar! This elegant cake is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. A fancy dessert with no guilt!
Coconut and Lemon Cream Pie
Coconut and lemon are probably my favorite match. This pie has an unexpected shortbread-like crust made with only coconut oil! The result is flaky, crumbly, and delicious. The creamy curd center gets an upgrade using coconut cream! If you serve immediately, the pie will be a bit messier than if you were to chill it for a few hours.
Chef John's Lemon Ice
Using the classic Italian granita technique makes this an easy and refreshing summer treat. I love the contrast between that light texture and bright, vibrant flavor.
Lemon Polenta Biscuits
These biscuits are both sweet and tart at the same time. They are one of the most requested recipes I make.
Lemon Rhubarb Bars
Sweet crunchy crust with a tart filling makes these lemon rhubarb bars deliciously sweet, yet tart. Warning: they are also highly addictive!
This is a deliciously light, creamy, sophisticated little dessert from days gone by. I first tasted it at a supper given by a lecturer in seventeenth-century literature when I was at college, and it took our tastebuds right back to the Restoration. It can be prepared as either a parfait or a punch--please note that either version contains alcohol, so you may not want to serve this to younger family members.
Lemon Butter Tarts
I love butter tarts, and can never get enough. This is one that I make now and then to be a little different.
Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie
Fresh lemon juice and lemon zest make this lemon meringue pie filling tart and lovely. And when it's poured into a waiting crust, topped with billows of meringue, and baked, it's downright dreamy.
Candied Lemon Peel
This is a good way to use up lemon rind and it goes good with coffee or on cake. It really does taste like candy, and you can do this to ANY citrus fruit. If you use oranges you can add brandy, cloves or other spices the mixture. Chop it up and put it in cookies, or just eat it by itself.
Lemon Icebox Pie III
A family favorite when a no-bake, fast pie is needed. (And family members too small to use the oven can make dessert!) Very pretty when garnished with whipped cream and mint leaves.
Limoncello Lemon Sorbet (With or Without Mint)
This is the concoction I came up with when I couldn't find quite what I was looking for. It is absolutely foolproof. It's simple, sweet, and tart, with just enough limoncello liqueur. Serve with sprig of mint or fresh berries. Top with limoncello or vodka if desired.
