I saw the recipe for these Lemon Crinkle Cookies at Whipperberry, and I am so glad I did. These cookies are tender and chewy and gently sweet. They contain lemon zest and fresh squeeze lemon juice and are rolled in powdered sugar for just perfect amount of sweet.

Combining cheesecake, lemon and mousse, makes for a rich, heavenly dessert. I found the recipe for this Lemon Cheesecake Mousse on Cooking Classy. With a graham cracker bottom and fresh blueberries and mint for garnish they are as pretty as they are delicious. Wouldn’t you love to serve these to your family?

Since presentation can mean the difference between ho-hum and amazing, I love the Anchor Hocking Tiered Pedestal Serving Plates available at Target. These serving plates are so versatile, and can be used stacked or separately. They work great to serve cookies, cupcakes, cakes, pies and more to your guests in style.

To really celebrate the lemon, why not serve dessert on these Enamel Lemon Plates from Pottery Barn. Plates come in a set of four and they are on sale right now!
