Lemon is one of my favorite flavors. I just can’t seem to get enough of the bright, refreshing citrus taste. And, of course, that means I have loads of lemon recipes to share with you.
This post is a Collection of Delicious Lemon Recipes from IBC. Which ones have you already tried? Which are calling out to you: “Make me, make me”? Let me know in the comments.
Delicious Lemon Recipes:
Thin Lemon Cookies
If you like sweet treats that are also tart, these crisp cookies are for you. Made with fresh lemon juice and lemon zest, they are bursting with flavor. I used a vintage cookie cutter to achieve the classic shape, but you could pick any cutter to suit the season or your party theme.
Lemon Sandwich Cookies
You can make the Thin Lemon Cookies in the previous recipe even more decadent by sandwiching two of them together with a creamy lemon filling. I was pleased to set out a plate of these cookies on my Easter table amidst the spring flowers and foil-wrapped chocolates. I also enjoy eating these cookies when they’re frozen!
Pink Lemonade Thumbprint Cookies
These lemon lovelies are soft with a glaze-filling that is both tart and sweet. They are a beautiful dessert for spring. However, they would be equally wonderful for Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s, Easter, Sweetest Day, or even a gender-reveal party.
Frosted Lemon Cookies
I baked these cookies to satisfy a lemon-craving. (It worked!) They are soft and chewy, and the cream cheese frosting adds even more of the citrus taste. For a little sparkle, top them with yellow or clear sanding sugar.
Blueberry Lemon Whoopie Pies
Who doesn’t love whoopie pies? This version combines lemon with lots of blueberries for an out-of-this-world treat. These whoopie pies are delightful at any time of the year. I made them in winter!
Lemon Yogurt Cake
I often fixed this lemony cake when I ran my B & B in St. Marys, PA. My guests seemed to enjoy it for breakfast, but I’ve also served it with afternoon tea or coffee. The simple lemon glaze adds to the delectable flavor and appearance of the cake.
Lemon Pistachio Bundt Cake
In addition to the usual ingredients for a cake, this lemon recipe contains lemon zest, ground pistachios, and rum. It tastes fabulous and looks gorgeous! A sprinkling of green via the pistachios gives a nod to St. Patrick’s Day, Earth Day, Arbor Day, Christmas, or any special day associated with that hue.
Lemon Curd Cheesecake Tarts
These little tarts are a cute and delicious way to wow your guests. I adore the tangy cream cheese and vibrant lemon in the filling as well as the soft, crumbly texture of the crust. If you don’t have mini tart pans, no worries! You can assemble this cheesecake in a square baking pan.
Lemon Pull-Apart Bread
Several years ago I featured this lemon recipe during my Year of Yeast series. My mom requested that I bring the bread to our family Easter gathering, and I was more than happy to oblige! I even traced the lineage of this recipe in case you want to try your hand at the different versions.
Note: I plan to make this recipe again and reformat the blog post to provide better images. Stay tuned!
Lemon and Blueberry Bread
This is a quick bread, so it doesn’t take long to whip up. What separates it from others is the lemon and blueberry flavor combination. This is one of those lemon recipes you’ll want to bake every chance you get!
Lemon Recipes: Lemon-Based Drink Recipes:
Lemons have likewise been part of many drinks concocted here on Inspired by Charm. Which of these lemon recipes have you enjoyed? What drinks do you fix with lemons or lemonade? If you have a minute, please tell us in the comments below.
Sparkling Mint Lemonade
When life gives you lemons, why not squeeze them for lemonade? In this recipe, classic lemonade gets a fun twist with sparkling water. This delicious drink made its debut when I participated in a tour of farmers markets on the west coast.
I always like to make a big batch of this margarita mix. It’s easy, and you can’t beat the taste of fresh! For a margarita, I use three ounces of the mix, a couple of ounces of tequila, and an ounce of triple sec. (Mom, I’m looking forward to drinking one of these with you soon!)
Blackberry Gin Lemonade
The name of this lemon recipe says it all. What a refreshing combination for a TGIF celebration or any time you want something light and bright! I garnished this cocktail with fresh blackberries, a sprig of rosemary, and a birch-inspired paper straw.
Spiked Strawberry Lemonade
I happened upon Sweet Revenge some years ago, and this drink is the result of my experimentation with the liqueur. Sweet Revenge tastes like strawberries mixed with citrus, and in this libation, I combined it with strawberry puree and lemonade. Yumminess with a kick!
I hope my Collection of Delicious Lemon Recipes inspires you to buy a bunch of lustrous, luscious lemons and create a citrusy sensation of your own. Have fun in the kitchen!
