20 Lovely Lemon Dessert Recipes

Our collection, 20 Luscious Lemon Dessert Recipes, showcases all the many, varied and delicious ways lemons can be used to add flavor to a dessert menu. These easy-to-make recipes are perfect for entertaining and a wonderful way to enjoy the summer weather. The burst of lemon with each dessert is enough to satisfy any sweet tooth. From cakes and pies to squares and bars, there is no shortage of lemon desserts to try. Tangy and sweet, these recipes bring a fresh and light quality to dessert that is often lacking in other, heavier and indulgent recipes. This list of lemon desserts will give you plenty of inspiration for spring and summer parties, potlucks and holidays, however, we'd be lying if we said these delightful recipes aren't worth making during any time of the year.

Lemon Greek Yogurt Cheesecake Bars

Bring a huge platter of lemon bars and lemon squares to your next party, and watch them disappear before your eyes! Nothing gets eaten up faster than a handheld mix of sugar and lemon.

OMG, these all look amazing. Lemon is my favorite dessert by far. Love this collection.

These all look so good! The Italian Lemon Crostada looks especially elegant.

There's something settling about lemon after a meal. I think it just seems to settle the stomach. Maybe its the acid, I am not sure but when you've eaten there is something very satisfying about lemon which seems to round up a meal. I have a friend who always brings over a lemon dessert every time I invite her for a meal. I always look forward to that dessert. Now I have some of my own to make!
