This is one of my favourite items I've made all year, not just because I can't master lemon meringue pie but this to me, is actually better. Enormous clouds of meringue top the easiest lemon filling and a divine buttery coconut base (which is what makes it better than Lemon Meringue Pie IMHO).
These little lemon and passion fruit cakes are baked in a friand tin. For a little surprise they are injected with lemon curd for added zing and frosted with a simple passionfruit icing!
I love no bake recipes and this is one of the easiest recipes to use up lemons. It takes no time to put together and the lemon cookie coconut base is made of simple pantry friendly ingredients mixed together in a bowl. The lemon frosting on top is an absolute dream and is also done in a few minutes flat!
If you want to serve up something pretty and delicate try these lemon basil cupcakes. The softest lemon white chocolate, basil and poppy seed cupcakes are topped with a silky cream cheese browned butter frosting, dabs of lemon curd and a basil leaf!
It's not easy to get Girl Scout Cookies here in Australia but if you want to give one of the tastiest cookies a try, make this recipe for Lemon Ups! It's a buttery lemon shortbread drizzled with a tangy lemon icing. Inspirational saying optional!
So tell me Dear Reader, how do you like to use up your lemons?
