Lemon Bars

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.

Sweet and Tangy Lemon Bars

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!
