6 Fresh Lemon-Flavored Desserts

From our friends at McCormick®: Here are seven ways to use McCormick® Pure Lemon Extract, for extra zesty, flavorful recipes all year long. A good rule of thumb when adding Pure Lemon Extract to a recipe is 1 teaspoon Extract = 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel, so you can add it to any recipe in lieu of fresh lemon.
