    Excellent! Not too sweet. I didn't have any lemon yogurt so I used a combination of blueberry and vanilla bean and added a bit of lemon extract. Delish! Will make again and will purposely buy lemon yogurt.

    Made them yesterday and they were good. Noticed today they had formed mold on them. Threw them out. Maybe if I had frozen them or refrigerated them right away.

    These are super quick and easy to make. I freeze them for breakfast and also they are amazing with a scoop of vanilla ice cream

    Absolutely wonderful! They disappear in record time in our house. I also used Greek "lemon cream" yogurt as no one seems to carry plain lemon yogurt. I use two of the 5.3 oz. containers. One of my go-to favorites!

    Perfect! I made them a little smaller for a party and everyone loved them

    I used Greek yogurt, and I only had a 5.3oz container, so I made up the volume difference with some sour cream. I used a cookie scoop to portion, and next time I'd probably not. It made them a little more smooth-topped and a tiny bit compacted on the interior. They'd also be great with orange zest/juice.

    These are great, my famiy loves them. Best served warm, but a few seconds in the microwave does the job. That is if you have any leftovers. They're a taste of summer!

    Excellent and easy! I also only had 5.3 oz. lemon yogurt, so I added half of a 5.3 oz container of plain nonfat yogurt. Not a problem. Also, I had Lemon Curd on hand, so I used that instead of making a glaze. I like that these are lower in fat and calories than similar muffins and scone recipes. I'll make them again!
