Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars are a yummy sweet treat that you can enjoy with family, friends, and others too. I love this dessert because I like how it combines a biscuit base with lemon flavor, and it reminds me of spring and summertime when the lemon tree in my garden gives us a LOT of juicy lemons.

If you like lemon flavored treats or need a dessert for a summertime picnic or party – I highly recommend these lemon bars. Don’t forget to dust them with powdered sugar once they cool so they look just like the bakery version (but I promise they taste better!)

Let’s get baking!
