There's something about a good lemon dessert recipe that I just love. Bright, tart and fresh, lemon also makes for a perfect summer dessert.
Not that I don't love a good chocolate dessert, too, because I surely do, but lately lemon has had my heart.
From lemon pie to lemon cookies to lemon ice cream cake, lemon sits right alongside chocolate and vanilla among the crown jewels of dessert.
