Thoughts 

This is a wonderful lemon dessert for all the lemon lovers out there. It is a refreshing and soft pastry. The lemon flavor is very pronounced. It is not too sweet and not too sour. There is a perfect balance of flavors here. This is my favorite lemon pastry that I’ve tried making

It makes a perfect treat for a picnic, lunch, and birthday 😉

Enjoy!

  4. I tried this recipe out last night and it turned out delicious! I did use coconut oil in place of the butter, I did use a little less coconut oil, but they still turned out great! It was a very easy recipe to do. My husband loves them too!
