Happy first day of spring! I’m ready for all the cute bunnies, asparagus, artichoke hearts and LEMONS. Lemon everything. It’s like the pumpkin spice of March, April and May.
For Easter, I’m planning to make my lemon loaf, which I thought would be fun to dress up with a few slices of candied lemons. They’re so quick to make – just a few minutes of prep and into the oven for about 45 minutes.
I mean, hey, spring! Amirite?!
All you need is a mandolin to get your thin, even slices of lemon and about 3-4 tablespoons of sugar.
Quick & Easy Oven Candied Lemons
Yield: About 24 slices, depending on size of lemons and thickness of slices.
Time: ~50 minutes
2-3 lemons, sliced with a mandolin
3-4 tbsp of sugar
Preheat the oven to 250°.
Line pan with parchment paper.
Thinly slice lemons and arrange on pan.
Generously top each slice with sugar, which will absorb into the lemons.
Bake for about 45 minutes until the lemons are covered with a sugary glaze.
Let cool and enjoy – easy peasy lemon squeezy! xo
