The Best Lemon Square Recipe


Does springtime make you crave the fresh taste of lemons? Well, it does me. So, I pulled the kiddies together this weekend for a session of cooking up sweet and tangy lemon squares. This recipe is the best I’ve ever found. A simple, shortbread crust is topped with a creamy lemon topping. No matter how many lemon bars you’ve made in your life, I can almost guarantee this recipe will become your all-time favorite.
