This recipe for Lemon Bars is from my mother’s file and one of my favorites. These bars have the perfect combination of sweet and tangy and are always a hit! These lemon bars are so light and refreshing, I could seriously eat 3 or 4 of these at a time.
Whip up a batch for an afternoon summer treat or bake some to take to the neighbor’s BBQ this weekend. One thing is certain, everyone will love you for sharing these refreshing treats!
