Spring Lime Tea Cookies

These soft and delectable frosted cookies rely on lime juice and lime zest to perk up their flavor. They’re perfect for your spring salad lunches and teas.

 

Lemon Blossoms

These glazed mini-cakes come from Paula Deen’s kitchen. They begin with a yellow cake mix and instant lemon pudding. Make them in mini muffin tins and don’t forget the lemon juice and zest.

 

Lemon-Lime Cream Tart

Begin this recipe with a vanilla wafer crumb crust. Add the creamy lemon lime filling and finish with a dollop of whipped cream and a few shreds of lemon or lime zest. Delicious.

 

Little Lemon Souffles

Begin with large lemons hollowed out. Follow the simple soufflé recipe. The soufflé will rise about an inch above the shell. Dust with powdered sugar for a spectacular dessert treat.
