This recipe is an attempt to recreate the powder sugar coated shortbread cookie with inclusions of candied lemon zest that I enjoyed as a child
Excerpt of review of the rebirth of the cookie under a new manufacturer:
"The crumbly cookies, coated with powdered sugar, and sprinkled throughout with enchantingly tart and yellow bits of lemony stuff, were so amazing that sometimes we’d polish off a whole box before we even got to the check-out counter (hey, we paid for the empty box!). But in the 1990s, Lemon Coolers disappeared from grocery store shelves after the cookie’s maker, Sunshine Biscuits, merged with Keebler in 1996."
This recipe is 100% DIY or Die community created. I started with a simple Biscuit and Lemon sicily and asked the group (via Facebook) how they suggested I tweak it to give it that powdered sugar feel and taste and a good lemon bite that was blended into the cookie, not overpowering it.
I will take 100% of the criticism as I published the final recipe under my name, but the guys in the DIYOD facebook group deserve the credit for getting this all-day-vape off the ground.
Since a lemon tart is a fairly straightforward profile I am presenting a normal recipe. Un- fairyfied 🤔
JK 🤣 I added sweetener so it took me to 9 Ingredients 😂
TFA and Cap Vanilla Cupcake make up my full on vanilla cake with frosting notes.
FA cookie fills in my bakery notes
FA Lemon Sicily is my primary Lemon note
SC Lemon is a strong lemon note that pushes the lemon notes in FA and helps it not fade.
FA Bergamot adds some zing/zest
WF SC Buttercream Frosting serves as a light artificial buttercream frosting flavor and at this 2% it’s also my sweetener.
This is not as much a creative effort as a logical combination of two of ID10-T's excellent ideas--the macaron base from Mango Blossom Macaron, and the blueberry flavor from Viserion. It's amazing how well these two elements work together, and as a blueberry lover this is already hands-down my favorite macaron recipe.
FW Blueberry and TPA Blueberry Extra provide a sweet, bright blueberry flavor shamelessly lifted from another of id10-t's best recipes, Viserion (at his suggestion). The dash of Lemon Sicily makes the berries pop. Feel free to substitute INW Lemon Mix or another tart lemon flavor.
Quoting id10-t for the parts of his recipe that I'm re-using for this blueberry variant.
"FA Almond 2%, FA Meringue 2%, CAP Sugar Cookie 2% - Simple and to the point, this is a macaron, a sweet meringue drop cookie made with egg whites, icing sugar, and ground almond. They're often infused with flavors and color, and made into a light, delicate cookie sandwich with a cream filling that might or might not also be flavored and colored. FA Almond gives a clear, clean almond flavor and FA Meringue has both the airy baked egg white and powered sugar thing going on. CAP Sugar Cookie stays sweet, texturizes (makes whole almonds ground), and further bakes these goodies. When I think about what a macaron tastes like, these three concentrates together just seem insanely obvious. AP-laden bakery ingredients are just too heavy for such light and airy cookies. Try this simple 2/2/2 macaron base with your preferred macaron flavors, but take care not to do so with a heavy hand. These treats are delicate and the flavoring should be subtle yet ingratiating.
FLV Cream 1% - There's your cream filling. This stuff is my Frank's Red Hot lately. If you have to sub something, try 1.5 to 2% CAP Vanilla Whipped Cream, which will shorten the steep time, or TFA Whipped Cream 2%, which will stretch it to two weeks. Neither of those will be quite the same, but should still be tasty."
Version 1: used the blueberry trifecta, but the bilberry wasn't working for me.
Version 2: Less bilberry, more FW blueberry. I think it's going in the right direction, but it's not far enough, I think.
Version 3 (this): I decide to try the base with another very successful blueberry profile, the one used in Viserion. Even as a shake and vape, I can tell this is a bingo! I'm still testing some variations, because there's no such thing as TOO delicious, but this is now the addictively sweet, delicate blueberry jam delicacy I was hoping for.
A moist sponge filled with a rich but balanced lemon drizzle topped off with fresh meringue. PERFECTION
Tastes great straight of a shake but truely shines after 5 days to 1 week steep.
It might seem like a lot of sweetener but trust me it works perfectly to balance out the tartness. IF YOU USE SUPER SWEET USE 1%.
This recipe was a working progress, the ingredients just needed tweaking and now I am very proud to release this to you all to enjoy.
The best lemon meringue pie to date, sharp, zesty, zingy, buttery, sweet... fairly simple recipe, added FA cookie to help the crust out in the VTA lemon meringue tart because it’s barely there, added FA Sicily to give another dimension to that lemon, the pudding base adds a thicker butteryness to that lemon curd and also helps the base out with that crumble mouthfeel... and last but not least, that flapper pie, wow. It’s all that’s been missing from LMT/LMP profiles... it brings that marshmallowey white meringue on top and the slight toasted sweet brown sugar-esque crust on top of the meringue. If you like Lemon meringue pie you can’t miss out on this :)
I use a pod for vaping 50 mg juice while I'm at work. I haven't found a single recipe that was for such a high nicotine mix so after trying out several of the mtl pod recipes on here and being dissapointed I decided to work on something simple and strong to get through the high nic mix.
This is the best 50mg nic juice I have vaped and decided to share since this area is lacking in diy.
It's simple and could easily be adapted to be better I'm sure but so far this has been working for me and I no longer waste 25 bucks on store bought juice that tastes terrible most of the time.
When I saw this picture I envisioned a nice summer poolside drink.
Cranberry juice with Tea and Brandy for an afternoon refreshing mixed drink, infused with strawberry oranges and lemons.
FA Lemon Sicily and FA Bergamot for the realistic citric aspect
FA Black Tea with a touch of FLV Red Tea for the steeped tea leaves aspect
TFA Cramberry Sauce with TFA Strawberry for the juice part of the cocktail.
FA Brandy for the light yet dry boosy aspect.
INW Cactus and FA polar blast for the refreshing effect.
Sweetener to mimic the syrupy taste of concentrated fruit juice.
There is snow on the ground here in Midwest, USA and I can't fathom a more perfect time to post this recipe for a nice glass of cool grape lemonade. The best grape that I found (that I personally have experience with anyway) to work in a lemonade is INW Grapes, sitting right at 4% here. This is a bit high for this particular flavor but we need to push it to its limit to keep up against that powerful wall of lemon goodness that is our lemonade base.
We create said lemonade by blatantly stealing Vurve's base from his Best Damn Pink Lemonade recipe, namely the 6% LA Lemonade and 0.75% FA Lemon Sicily. It works so well that we don't have to look any farther, for now there is no need to reinvent the wheel.
We must also add a little cooling to make it a lemonade and not a grape lemonheads candy. WS23 is my personal go to at 0.15% in this instance. You can go higher and turn this into a full blown slushy type mix if you desire, but that's a little too hardcore for my liking.
Sweetener is optional as always, though it does add a little bump to the overall sweetness of the mix and seems to round everything off pretty well.
As all lemonades go, it's better fresh, after a week or so the lemon drops off heavily. I don't mix more than I can vape in about 4 or 5 days. Mix before bed and enjoy in the morning.
