Yummy Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

One of my favorite treats was the Lemon Bars a friend of mine would make and  bring to work.   I never worried about making them because she was pretty regular about making them and sharing them with us.  It wasn’t long before our unit at work decided to put together a cook book and my friend shared her recipe.  Although the Lemon Bars she brought to work were perfect, I couldn’t get her recipe to work for me.  My Lemon Bars seemed to be lacking, so I changed just a few things and wa-la….Yummy Lemon Bars.  The trick is to use real lemon juice (fresh squeezed), but you can use bottled lemon juice and they will still be yummy.  I also had to change the cook times.  This recipe is doubled.  A special thanks to Jenae for sharing your yummy recipe with me.
