Lemon anything in the summertime is just about my favourite thing. It probably has something to do with the bright, vibrant yellow of a lemon looking like the sun and putting a big smile on my face.
A friend of mine from culinary school sent me a message asking if I had a go-to lemon bar recipe. I didn’t, but I definitely do now.
These bars are lemony. There is nothing subtle about the lemon with these and that’s just the way I like it. I’ve put some lemon zest in the shortbread and 8 lemons worth of freshly squeezed lemon juice making up the filling.
Lemons for everyone!
These lemon bars couldn’t be easier to make. A super simple 4-ingredient shortbread base and the filling? The hardest part is juicing the lemons, which isn’t hard at all 🙂
Top these babies off with a little powdered sugar when they’re cool and you have just about the most perfect summer treat!
When life gives you lemons, make lemon bars.
