Who wants a lemon square?

So it's definitely cold here in the D and rather then fighting the cold and surprise 3 inches of snow we got this evening, I tried out my baking skills again and made homemade lemon bar squares. My original intent was to make lemon meringue cupcakes (my mouth waters thinking about them) however, I did not have a candy thermometer that I needed to make the frosting and I didn't have a kitchen torch to give it the "professional" touch.. guess I better put those on my list, right?

Anyways, these bad boys were delish! Hubby enjoyed them very much and I am even thinking of adding them to my list of super bowl goodies to bring to the party tomorrow. I'm sure I will have to double everything up to make a bigger batch then just something like this:

We already polished off three of them before I thought of snapping a picture of them. I added a bit more lemon zest then the actual recipe called for because I had scrapped up a bit more than it called for and i didn't want it to go to waste! It was perfect, in fact it gave it a more lemony flavor and if you like lemon, you will really enjoy it.

I found the recipe while snooping around online here:


  1. I will have to give these a shot - I love lemon! And they look delicious! :]
