Posts Tagged ‘lemon bars’

When I think of lemon bars, I think of my Grandma Betty, and her puckered lips and beaming smile after taking a bite of one of these tangy-sweet treats.  She loved to make a batch, usually with lemon jello or pudding mix, and then refrigerate them so they were cool.


Inspired by Betty, I made these bars for a recent picnic and barbecue.
