Lemon Bars

When I say these are the BEST lemon bars.. I am dead serious. To be honest, I am not really a lemon person. I love lemons in my tea but as far as lemon flavored items go.. I am not a fan. That being said, I CRAVE THESE LEMON BARS. You eat one and then another and then you look down and the dish is empty. I first was introduced to this recipe in high school and it's been a staple ever since. I made lemon bars for my book club and all my friends loved them. Don't hesitate making these. They are inexpensive and so good.
