Lemon Bars

Our lemon tree right now is going crazy. We have more lemons than we know what to do with. I put them in my water and my daughter has made homeade lemonade a few times. I even brought a big bag to work to share with co-workers.  And I still have lemons! So when life gives you lemons...make lemon bars.


I love the big thick layer of lemon in this recipe. Except for squeezing all the lemons to get their juice, this is a pretty easy and quick recipe! A light dusting of powdered sugar finishes them off.


These would be great for a Mother's Day brunch or just because you have extra lemons. Here is the recipe from Ina Garten at the Food Network: Lemon Bars

Hope you are all having a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
