lemon dessert recipes

MarthaStewart.com has a fabulous Lemon Desserts gallery featuring lots of yummy-looking treats that should appeal to fans of this popular citrus flavor. The image above of Lemon Madeleines looks especially scrumptious to me for some reason, but the Glazed Lemon Pound Cake, Lemon Custard Cakes, and Lemon-Berry Pudding Cakes don’t sound too shabby either!

I have to admit that I have dessert for breakfast more often than one should! At least with the word “lemon” in it it sounds kind of healthy, right? ;)

Just made a cheesecake and topped it with lemon curd. Lemon anything is my favorite dessert! I will have to try some of these.

I am trying my hand at pie crusts, have an extra one left and want to make a lemon dessert using the pie crust (not a pie). Any ideas? Can I use the pie crust for a lemon bar recipe?
