This recipe is perfect for when you want an over-the-top lemoncentric dessert… but just a little bit of it. Bright cupcakes flavored with lemon extract, zest and juice filled with creamy lemon curd, topped with rich cream cheese frosting and tangy candied lemon slices. But only 3 of them. (Ingredients measurements are also included for a full batch of 12 cupcakes.)
This sunshine bright recipe is the perfect way to close out the summer. The 1st day of fall is coming up fast and temperatures are dropping so eat ye frozen treats while ye may. Chewy lemon and white chocolate chip cookies meet creamy frozen lemon curd for a tart, extra lemony burst of flavor. Also included are instructions for preparing your own lemon extract and lemon curd to save you money on these otherwise pricey ingredients.
