Lemons, lemons, lemons! Meyer Lemons! When life gives you lemons you make lemon bars or lemon chicken piccata!

I’m still working my way through all the Meyer lemons I bought. These lemon bars though, are so good and such a great use of those Meyer lemons. I have been wanting to make these bars forever and I finally made them and I’m so glad I did. They were totally worth it. If you love lemons, or lemon bars, or anything lemony, you must try these lemon bars.

There are only a few shopping days left, and I’m so happy to tell you I am officially done with my shopping, and the gift wrapping, and decorating and it feels wonderful. It’s all done! Usually I’m out there shopping on Christmas Eve with everyone else, but this year, we finished early. Which is fantastic because it gives me extra time to bake! YAY!

And that’s just what I did. One of my favorite chefs is Ina Garten, I love her cooking style and this is why I chose her recipe for lemon bars. I’m glad I did because these are the best lemon bars I’ve had, they’re sweet and tart and lemony, just what you want in a lemon bar.

These lemon bars start with a simple yet delicious shortbread crust, that basically requires only 3 ingredients, flour, butter and sugar.

Great tip and not only does it make it easier to lift out the bars, but you will also end up with a pretty clean baking pan, not much scrubbing and cleaning required….
