22 Lemon Desserts You'll Want to Immediately Devour

Spring is the perfect time of year for lemon desserts. And so is summer. Okay, if I'm being honest, I'm reaching for a lemon dessert whenever I see one.

The citrus and sugar pairing is an all-time classic for a reason, delivering the perfectly balanced bite. It generally feels lighter than a sweet with chocolate — though we have a lemon chocolate treat on this list, too — without compromising on the alluring appeal of other desserts.
