Awesome Gluten Free Lemon Bars that have the traditional shortbread like crust with the tangy, sweet-sour filling of lemon. This was my Grandmother's recipe that I converted to gluten free. Fantastic on a hot summer day!

These are so good! I am the only one with Celiac Disease that HAS to eat Gluten Free, also the only one who cooks. I do not tend to be bothered by the gritty texture anymore that most GF flours have but the rest of my family is. They also LOVED this recipe!

These were really a hit in my house. I did up the amount of lemon juice to 3 tablespoons. The flour and butter were combined using the food processor. Like I said delicious!

I used Meyer Lemon when I made this and it just wasn't flavorfully sour enough for me. I want INTENSE lemon zing!
