Lemon Bars


Super lemony! (if that’s even a word?) These bars are sweet and tart at the same time. A perfect treat! I have made lemon bars out of a box before, never knowing how easy it was to make them from scratch. And the taste was so much better and I am happy to serve my family fresh ingredients without all the preservatives! Enjoy!
