The winter is FINALLY slipping away in Wisconsin so I’m doing my best to welcome Spring along. Something about Spring just screamed “citrus” to me, and when I thought of citrus, my mind wandered to lemon bars. I love lemon bars for the contrasting textures of the shortbread crust and the creamy, lemony filling. Also, it never hurts if there is a nice layer of powered sugar to top things off.
I really enjoyed this recipe because the bars are not too sweet, and they have a healthy amount of lemon filling on top. This was the first time I made lemon bars from scratch, and it was surprisingly easy! Lemon bars are another dessert that I used to prefer making from a box, but now that I’ve made them with fresh ingredients, I’ll never go back! Enjoy!
