I have entered into my Spring/Summer everything lemon phase again. It happens every year about this time and generally lasts a couple of months. There is no explanation for it, at least none of which I am aware, so I just enjoy myself. With a big Costco size bag of lemons in the fridge, I’m ready for a serious lemon fest.
I have a series of three posts for lemony things and the absolute guarantee that more lemon posts will follow this summer. So, pucker up, baby.
Lemon bars are not a new phenomenon and as I see it, there’s really not much wiggle room for changing the average lemon bar recipe. The one that I am presenting here is from Land O’ Lakes. It’s got a nice amount of tang vs. sweet plus a wonderful buttery crust. The only alteration I made to the recipe was to sprinkle the tops of the lemon bars with powdered sugar instead of using the glaze. I think that the glaze would have pushed the bars a bit too far on the sweet-o-meter, but I could be wrong.
