Hawaii Mom Blog: Lemon Bars




February 20, 2017

Lemon Bars

I love lemon bars, but I don't like baking them for some reason.  However, having recently bought a huge bag of lemons from our local warehouse club, I decided to make Lemon Bars.  Although the last time I made lemon bars I thought they were really good, I used The Pioneer Woman's recipe this time.

The end result was indeed delicious, yet a lot more tart than the recipe I last used since this recipe requires more lemon juice.

So if you like tart, you'll love these lemon bars!

  1. Can you recommend some other really good lemon bar recipes you've tried? I like tart but not crazy tart. I tried the Martha Stewart recipe but it was jus aiight. I really love the Cookie Corner bars but can't find a copycat recipe for those. Any recommendations?
