It’s no surprise, I love lemon. What can I say?! I just love the tangy fruit and how it pairs with sweet dessert flavors. Because lemon trees produce fruit year-round, lemon is always in season for baking! What’s better than that?! In honor of my love for all things lemon, here are my top 5 lemon recipes from the blog.

1.) Lemon Ricotta Cookies:

These cookies are easily one of my favorite recipes from the blog. They are light and airy. They have the perfect combination of sweet and tart. If you are entertaining, these make a great dessert!


2.) Two Ingredient Pink Lemonade: 

When I was little, I used to think there were actual pink lemons that you made pink lemonade with. Hence why pink lemonade always better than regular lemonade, or so I  thought! I was so shocked to find out it was just food coloring that made it pink. These cupcakes can be made with a regular lemon cake mix, but I found a pink lemonade mix, so obviously, that was the choice to be made. These cupcakes are so easy to make it’s almost funny. The icing features lemon curd which gives an amazing tang.


3.) Best ever lemon bars

Speaking of tang, these classic bars pack some serious pucker. The buttery shortbread crust adds a richness to balance the flavor. The dusting of powdered sugar adds a slight sweetness. They have the perfect gooey texture. You will never need another lemon bar recipe after you try this one!



4.) Raspberry Lemonade Bundt Cake:

I clearly have a thing for lemonade on this blog! This bundt cake boosts the tart factor with a beautiful raspberry glaze. The buttery lemon bundt cake has just the right amount of sweetness. Together, these two are a match made in heaven! And it makes for quite a showstopping brunch!!



5.) Lemon Brownies:

These brownies will forever remind me of my grandma. Like me, she absolutely adored lemon. Her all-time favorite dessert was lemon merengue pie. Sadly, when I first featured this recipe, she battling against cancer. Although she is no longer here, whenever I make anything lemon (especially these bars) I instantly feel reconnected with her! These bars are gooey and rich. They have a sweet lemon glaze that will have coming back for more.
