Lemon Sunshine Cookies
Your skin may be blanched with wintertime pallor, but at least your cookies can still go sunbathing. These tender buttermilk cookies are dunked in a lemon glaze that gives them a sun-shiny coating.
There's nothing like a silky lemon sorbet to help cleanse your palate after a big meal of winter favorites like chili or casserole.

If you're going to use any kind of citrus in a dairy-based dessert, it helps to use full-fat ingredients to prevent curdling. Candied zest is a recommended addition to this custardy ice cream for a double dose of lemon action.
Lemon Cardamom Syllabub
On the other hand, a slight curdle can provide a welcome bit of texture in desserts like syllabubs, which are the British take on flavored whipped cream. A bit of brandy and fresh lemon juice adds a bracing and boozy tingle here to wake up your tastebuds.
