Lemon Cream Whoopie Pies

07 May Lemon Cream Whoopie Pies

 

With summer fast approaching, I keep seeing citrus fruits featured on everyone’s social media. Whether it is in form of drink floaties, patterns on swim suits, or refreshing summer cocktails…fruit is RULING MY LIFE. I couldn’t take it anymore, and decided to join in our the fun. Marrying citrus with desserts is my favorite way to bake. The tartness of citrus with the sweetness of a typical dessert  is the PERFECT combination. so without further ado, check out my mom’s recipe for Lemon Cream Whoppie Pies. Comment on the blog, or on IG to let me know how yours turn out!
