Enjoy the sweetness of cheesecake mousse paired with tart fresh lemon in these two desserts. This pretty Lemon Cake Roll and these sweet little Triple Lemon Cookie Cups make perfect springtime desserts.
When I think of spring and summer desserts, lemon is at the top of the list.
Lemon is light and refreshing and perfect for this time of year.
Lemon Cake Roll
With it’s pretty yellow color, lemon not only adds a lovely tart flavor to desserts, but it makes them colorful and fun, like this Lemon Cake Roll.
I’ve really enjoyed making several for Tablespoon.com recently and this one is one of my favorites. All the others have been made with plain white or yellow cake, whereas this one starts with a lemon cake. I just love the contrast of the tart lemon cake with the rich and cream cheesecake fluff filling.
To punch up the lemon flavor of this cake, I added a glaze made with freshly squeezed lemon juice and topped it off with some lemon zest.

Triple Lemon Cookie Cups
If you really like a lemony dessert, you are going to love these Triple Lemon Cookie Cups.
Not only is the cookie flavored with lemon juice and lemon zest, but the cheesecake mousse is too. To top it all off each dessert is drizzled with lemon curd.
These cupcake sized desserts are really easy to make. You can check out the recipe and tutorial at Tablespoon.com.
Surprisingly, I have not made very many lemon desserts to share with you. This spring, I just might need to make some more to go along with these…
What’s your favorite lemon dessert?
