In Season: Lemons

I’ve been noticing lately that when certain fruits or vegetables are in season, everyone starts talking about them, myself included. Can you really blame us? There’s nothing like fruit picked straight from the tree, and right now those trees are full of lemons.

So I’ve decided to start a new little section here on Pizzelles, highlighting some great season recipes available on the web. Today, it’s all about lemons…

Lemon Bars from Bakery Days

Lemon Scones from Reverie Daydream

Lemon Souffle Tartlets from Orangette

Lavender Lemon Yogurt Cake from Darjeeling Dreams

Lemon Rosemary Butter Cookies from Bakery Days via All Things Ami

Lemon Goat Cheese Cheesecakes with Blood Orange Sauce from Tartelette

Bon Appetit, friends!


  1. Mmmm, I love fresh lemons :) In our house growing up, we had a huge lemon tree and would go out every season to pick some fresh ones. And lately, I've been adding half a lemon to freshly squeezed Texas orange juice, and it totally brings out the flavor better :) Love me some lemons!

  2. ohhh i LOVE lemon paired with raspberry, it's one of my faves!! i LOVE this new feature of fruits, they are soo delish! i can't wait for your mango and blueberry features! :)

  3. i love this!! we have a ton of lemons on our little lemon tree. i really don't want them to go to waste, but you can only make so many hot toddies. :) i really want to make the scones and the lemon rosemary butter cookies. yum!

  4. I love this post! I stocked up on lemons last night – my boyfriend was all, 'why so many lemons?' They're in season and make some of the best desserts, in my opinion. I think I just might veganize Martha Stewart's lemon bars..

  5. wow. great compilation. will be linking up to this post when i get my "yellow" week together. thanks for the mention with the cookies. i do adore them and karen did a great job walking through them at her post.

    citrus is one of my most favorite things about this season! yay!

  6. I just got a TON of meyer lemons from a friend's tree, so I would love to try some of these. Thanks for sharing the recipes!

  7. Lemons are very in right now! My mom subscribed to a magazine, I think it's called "Cooking Light" or something. I was going through it since I am put on a strict diet by my doctors and noticed that a lot of the recipes included lemons. ^^

  8. This new section is a great idea. I've been trying to cook based on seasons and can't wait to see your next roundup. Thanks for the mentions! I may have to try the lemon scones with my remaining lemons.
