This week is my annual lemon week. I really do love the flavor of lemon and everyone should have a lemon bars recipe in their collection.

This lemon bar recipes is one I got from a good friend of mine. She made them one time and I fell in love the moment I had one. They look fancy but really are simple to make!

The bottom is a nice buttery shortbread like crust followed by a luscious creamy lemony layer that creates a ever so lightly crispy crust like layer on top as it bakes.

Of course, it all must be finished off with a sprinkling of powdered sugar. These would be awesome to make for mom for Mother’s Day too! I’m telling you this is THE LEMON BAR RECIPE to make.
