In my opinion, there’s nothing better than a sweet and tangy lemon bar! Make them creamy and it’s almost like cheating.
Not to mention the buttery shortbread crust! These bars are the perfect combination of salty & sweet. The secret to the crust is baking it for 10 minutes before adding the filling. This makes it crisp, buttery, and beyond DELICIOUS!
Lemon bars are a classic icon in the south, no doubt about it!
Whether you make them for a shower, picnic, or a simple dessert for dinner these are bound to be a favorite amongst family & friends.
The thing I love most about these bars is how they hold their shape! The creamy filling cuts beautifully after they’ve set in the frig!
The key to cutting lemon bars into the “perfect square” is using parchment paper. I cannot begin to describe all of the benefits of using it!
Not only do you get perfectly square bars, but the cleanup is a breeze as well! I cannot wait for y’all to try this recipe!
