Looking for a refreshing change from heavy desserts? Peggy Key from Grant, Alabama shares these light citrus squares that are not too tart and not too sweet. "Paired with pecans, the lemon juice turns these cheesecake treats into bars of gold." she writes.
Memorable family meals were complete when these tangy bars were served, my husband remembers from his childhood. That's still true today for our family. Their sweetness rounds out the meal, but the lemony flavor keeps them light. Don't expect many leftovers once family and friends taste these bars! —Denise Baumert, Dalhart, Texas
These bars are simple enough for no-fuss dinners yet elegant enough for special celebrations. Regardless of when you serve them, I'm sure they'll be a hit at your home.—Melissa Mosness, Loveland, Colorado
A neighbor gave me this recipe years ago and it's been in flavor rotation ever since. It can be made ahead and serves a bunch, so it's perfect for parties and potlucks. —Marina Castle, Canyon Country, California
