Layers of Lemony Love is a deliciously creamy lemon dessert that’s perfect for spring! This easy dessert starts with a simple shortbread crust topped with sweet lemon cheesecake and creamy whipped topping. It’s ideal for summer parties, picnics, or baby showers….and always a crowd favorite. If you love lemon, this is a must make recipe!
I partnered with Lucky Leaf to bring you this recipe. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Lemon Tree Dwelling possible!
So. Who’s ready for spring? I know I am…and I have been for months now! And yet. It just. keeps. snowing. We’re currently getting snow on top of snow on top of ice. The kids are hoping for a snow day and Jorden is out shoveling again and the last two weeks of soccer have been canceled. And…oh yeah. It’s April 18th.
This weather is total insanity! Tell me it’s better where you are. Or don’t…I may be jealous.
The only good news? Once spring finally gets here we’ll all be really ready for it. And in the mean time? We can pretend it’s warm outside by making ALL the lemon desserts. Sound like a plan?
There’s just something about lemon that feels happy. And warm. And springy.
Maybe it’s the color….like sunshine….or maybe it’s the bright, refreshing taste. Whatever it is, when it comes to desserts you want to make all spring and summer long, lemon is always at the top of the list.
Between the shortbread crust and the creamy lemon cheesecake filling and the whipped topping to finish it off…this is one lemon dessert you can’t help but be obsessed with.
