The Best Lemon Bars
"The best lemon bars recipe — a perfectly sweet and tart lemon filling on top of a rich and buttery shortbread crust. These tangy lemon bars are a popular choice for holidays, brunches, bridal showers, baby showers, and bakes sales. I especially love serving chilled lemon bars right from the fridge during the Spring and Summer months. They are light, fresh, and just the perfect dessert for warm days. As you will see, these homemade lemon bars are not only the perfect combination of tart and sweet, but they are also super smooth and creamy thanks to the extra egg yolks in the recipe. "
