This recipe from Among the YoungΒ was so good though, it could make anyone a lemon bar believer! We only made a few modifications, and let me tell ya, they turned out AMAZING.

I’ll paint the picture for you: Moist, buttery crust with a sweet, yet perfectly tart lemon layer, topped with a generous amount of powdered sugar. Are you drooling yet? There’s something about the lemony flavor that makes these bars easy to eat. They’re not overly sweet or rich – they’re kind of refreshing rather than heavy! But don’t take my word for it. Whip up a batch of these easy Lemon Bars and see for yourself!

How to make Lemon Bars:

    This is very similar to a Lemon Bar recipe made with a cake mix and all the other ingredients. However, one doesn’t always have a lemon cake mix on hand when they get the urge so will give this a try.

    QUESTION: Should the pan be greased?
