Spring has sprung! At least it has in some parts of the world! If you are not so fortunate to experience temps in the 70’s, it’s time for some brightness from these very spring-y Lemon Bars! I don’t know what it is about bars, but they’re so pretty and so lovely to have at any special event, or actually, any day!
Especially when they are the kind that are really pretty basic to make! You don’t have to drag out a rolling pin, really! I know my bread recipes are usually a little more complicated, so this is something to put together in a short amount of time with a very big reward! I realize that I have to share more bars here with all of you lovelies. It may be possible the last ones I shared where these sensational sake strawberry bars. I am already imagining baking these bars with grapefruit and maybe orange juice. Or I’ll just stick to these lemon bars, because these bars are what everyone is asking for (yes, they disappeared too fast!).
