A few months back I made the mistake of getting lemon juice from the grocery store every week for about a month. I kept forgetting that I had already purchased it. Thank-you ADHD for this. So when I finally realized I had 4 big bottles of lemon juice in the house I knew I would need to make a lot of lemon recipes.
This isn’t a problem because I happen to love lemon and lemon desserts. That’s when I went in search of lemon recipes I could make in order to use up all this lemon juice I suddenly had plenty of.
Best Lemon Recipes for Lemon Desserts
Below are some of my favorites from everything that I found. They were delicious and my whole family liked them. A few weeks of delicious lemon desserts being available in the house wasn’t so bad.
Lemon Poppyseed Muffins
I don’t often classify muffins in the dessert category, I just prefer them for breakfast. So does my kid. These lemon poppyseed muffins were fantastic and my whole family gobbled them up for breakfast for most of a week.
Lemon Cheesecake Hand Pies
These were a delicious dessert that my family loved. It hit all those great sweet tooth cravings with that lemon taste we all love. Surprisingly they weren’t difficult to make and they are on a list of desserts I’ll happily make again.
Lemon Meringue Pie
I always wanted to try my hand at a Lemon Meringue Pie and I finally did it. It wasn’t the prettiest Lemon Meringue ever but it tasted delicious. I will probably stick to ordering my Lemon Meringue pie but at least I tried it.
Another item I prefer for breakfast but it’s still delicious for any snack time need. I would say this is extremely close to the lemon loaf you get at Starbucks which is the point of this recipe.
Lemon Oreo Dessert
So this recipe didn’t call for any lemon juice that I had in abundance but it was a fantastic no bake dessert I couldn’t not try. My whole family loved it too, just make sure you have the space in the fridge for this dessert when you make it.
Lemon Sugar Cookies
I love Lemon cookies and these were absolutely scrumptious. Of all the recipes I made this one came in as number one. They are easy to make, cure the lemon craving, and are a lighter cookie for summer. If you have any pot lucks to attend in the Spring or Summer this is a great option to whip up.
Lemon Dump Cake
Dump cakes are some of my favorite ways to make cake. They are super easy, can be made in the house, camping, or on a grill, and are delicious to share with a group. I have a summer birthday so this is a great cake for me to ask my husband to make.
Lemon Bundt Cake
I personally love this bundt cake for a Spring celebration. It’s light, sweet, and delicious. Any group will dig in and love this cake.
Lemon Icebox Pie
Another fantastic no bake lemon dessert for summer. This is a great way to get a cold sweet treat when it’s too hot to bake or you don’t have air conditioning. I love lemon when it’s super hot out because it’s not heavy like other desserts.
Lemon Cheesecake Cookies
Now these lemon cheesecake cookies are great for Fall or Winter baking. They are a bit heavier because of the cheesecake but they are delicious and still have that light lemon flavor that lemon dessert lovers want.
Cream Cheese Lemon Bars
There are two types of lemon bars, these cheesecake bars are simply fantastic and perfect for a Fall or Winter dessert. I highly recommend them for the holidays because they are sure to please guests and disappear quickly.
The second type of lemon bars are these. They are great for Spring or Summer celebrations, or even just because you are craving a lemon dessert. They are light and delicious.
Finally, we have possibly the greatest Lemon Cheesecake recipe. Why is it the greatest? Because this is a no bake recipe. It’s super easy to make, delicious, and perfect for a quick family dessert, potluck, or get together.
Best Lemon Dessert Recipes
I know not everyone loves lemon recipes or lemon desserts. I personally cannot get enough of them. It comes down to that perfect sweet and tangy blend. If the dessert has just the right amount of both it’s perfect. These recipes all have that perfect blend.
