27 Delicious Lemon Desserts

Life giving you lemons is pretty much the best thing that can happen.

Regular lemons are intensely sour and very potent, whereas meyer lemons aren't as acidic, and have a subtly sweet, floral flavor. Also, meyer lemons are more orange in color, and have smoother skin.

Substituting one for the other won't make a recipe taste bad, exactly, it'll just taste different. Better to go with whichever variety is suggested.
