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
I've put together two family cookbooks over the years, and this recipe ranks among my favorites. These special lemon bars have a yummy shortbread crust and a refreshing flavor. I'm never afraid to make this dessert for guests since I know it will be a hit. —Margaret Peterson, Forest City, Iowa
June Trom of Blooming Prairie, Minnesota takes advantage of convenient refrigerated cookie dough to make these luscious lemon squares. "My 27 grandchildren love their sweet and tangy flavor," she reports.
