I seriously can’t get enough lemon lately and one of my favorite lemon treats are Easy Lemon Bars. I first tried these bars when my brother Danny, who I don’t recall ever cooking or baking, made them for a family get together. I seriously ate like four of them, one after the other, they were that addictive. A perfect blend of sweet and tart, so simple yet so delicious.
When I said these were easy, really, they are easy! I did mention my brother made them before I ever did, right? :) While it’s an incredibly easy recipe, it’s one that I don’t make often because I have zip, zilch, zero willpower when it comes to these bars. None. They are that good.
That’s about all you need right there. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. Literally, you do actually squeeze a lemon.
These photos are actually from a while ago, somehow they never made it onto the blog. I have replaced my microplane since this photo was taken. The microplane I was using was totally wrong for the job and was a pain to use. I now use an OXO Good Grips Spice Grater, which is probably also totally wrong for the job, but I absolutely love it. Again, it’s made for spices, but this isn’t a Cooking Channel TV show here, it’s much more “what works in my kitchen”. You can see the difference here in this post for Margarita Cookies (which are awesome by the way, I mean cookies and margaritas – yes please!).
