Full disclosure, I made three batches of lemon bars last week. Dave looked at me like I was crazy. But the first batch was a different recipe and it was kinda thin and I wasn’t a big fan. Second batch was a big hit and I gave those to my friend as a thank you. Then I had to make a third batch because I still needed to take photos to use on the site. #foodbloggerproblems
Then I meant to take them to work today…..but I forgot them in the fridge this morning. So I have another night of these lemon bars in my house and I have a feeling that box might have a few missing when I deliver them tomorrow. I have no control.
When I posted about making these lemon bars, I had so many people message me asking for the recipe. Soooo….tah da! This one is an easy one with a big pay off. There’s just something about a lemon dessert that makes people happy. It’s light and refreshing and perfect for summer!
Add these to your summer baking list, they are so good! Follow me over on Facebook and Instagram @lolosdesserts. Be sure to snap a pic if you make a Lolo’s recipe and tag it with #lolosdesserts. I love to see what you are making!
