I've started using a lot of lemons now that it's Spring. For me lemons are some of the many things that represent Spring, their sunshine yellow color and their bursting fresh acidic flavor. You can do so much with lemons; make a lemon curd for a tart filling or lemon sorbet or anything. Lemons are such a great ingredient for the creative mind, you can play with lemons and create great new and exciting recipes.
These cookies are great to go with a cup of coffee or for the british in you a nice cup of tea. These cookies are rather quite crumbly so you'll definitely get crumbs all over the place.
It's the first time I decided to try making a buttercream. I've always turned away from making buttercream because I feared it would taste of nothing but butter. Although this was a swiss lemon meringue buttercream I could still taste the butteriness and wasn't quite taking a liking to my taste buds. This however does not make me give up searching for the perfect buttercream recipe. I will have to go through a lot of butter to find the buttercream that i'm looking for.
Recipe coming soon!
