Easter celebrations and memories mean a lot of different things to different people, but we have one distinct memory that we will always cherish during this time. At our family gatherings, our aunt would always bring these Lemon Drop Easter Cookies and they were always the hit of the day. The soft, lemony cookies topped with the sugary, citrus infused glaze were always crowned with the cutest pastel sprinkles. They truly were the dessert everyone considered to be the right of passage to the beginning of spring or a fresh start, and we adored them. These cookies are so good that we would beg our mom to make some Lemon Drop Easter Cookies again and again, no matter the occasion, because they're just too good to limit to one season of the year! If you are looking for a refreshing and sweet treat to tantalize your taste buds, try these little melt-in-your-mouth sprinkled jewels. They will disappear before you know it!

This Carrot Pudding actually draws from the English tradition of steamed puddings; they aren't puddings like American puddings, but instead are a steamed cake filled with all kinds of interesting goodies. In this case, Carrot Pudding is filled with your guessed it, bright carrots, and also sweet dates, crunchy nuts, and even potatoes for a distinct heartiness. It's steamed until tender and then served with a homemade buttery vanilla sauce. This might be a new twist for your next dessert, but you won't regret making it!
