Lemon Bars - these classic lemon bars are simple, delicious, a bit tart (and a bit sweet), they could make anybody a lemon bar believer!!

Hi guys! Last time, I went a whole month without posting something for your sweet tooth. Well, if you know me at all, you know that I prefer sweet over boring, normal, food anyway! So, I decided it shouldn’t be too long before I brought you another yummy Tried and True treat. Although my sister, Tara, doesn’t agree, I’ve decided to add these tasty Lemon Bars to our ever growing favorite treats list (yup, she only eats chocolate-y treats and no fruity ones). These bars from Among the Young were so good though, it could make anyone a lemon bar believer.

This recipe is the perfect old fashioned Lemon Bar you remember growing up with. It’s simple, delicious, a bit tart (and a bit sweet), and perfect for Spring!! Here is what you’ll need to make them…
