Pretty daisy-shaped Linzer cookie cups filled with tart lemon curd make for a festive spring or summer dessert. These Lemon Daisy Cookie Cups would be lovely treats to serve at a summertime party, on Mother's Day, for a wedding shower or a birthday party.
Linzer cookies have a wonderful almond flavor and a nice crisp texture. I love that they can easily be cut into daisies and then baked in a cupcake pan to create edible cookie cups which can be filled with anything from jelly to mousse. In this case, I used lemon curd. The bright yellow color made the flowers look really pretty and the tart flavor balanced so nicely with the nutty cookies.
I took the easy route and used store-bought lemon curd but you can certainly make lemon curd from scratch if you prefer.
You can find the recipe for these pretty little Lemon Daisy Cookie Cups
