Lemon Bars


I like lemons. Nothing can compare to the smell of the aromatic lemon scent that surrounds the kitchen when baking these bars.

What I like about this recipe is that it is in small portion. Yes, not all things big are good. Sometimes, you have a craving for something sweet sourish but you do not want to overeat. This recipe is perfect. For those who can consume a lot, just double or triple the ingredients accordingly.




For those of you who likes sourish sweets, this recipe is recommended. It is a simple recipe with easy to obtain ingredients. It is easy, it is forgiving, it is delicious. What more are you waiting for?
