A question about a recipe: Aunt Mariah's Lemon Sponge Cups

D5c1c351 db82 42b9 941f 6ea13df107ef  ss020811f 133

I have a question about the recipe "Aunt Mariah's Lemon Sponge Cups" from ENunn. Should I use Meyer Lemons, which are in season now, for this recipe or stick with regular lemons?

I think Meyer lemons would be fabulous in this recipe.

I have made a similar recipe three different ways depending on what I had on hand -- with lemons, Meyer lemons, or oranges - all equally delicious! Sponge custard is a great quick dessert for a weeknight dinner, so use what you have. Here on the East Coast, Meyer lemon are hard to come by, so I envy you having them readily available -- wherever you are!
