Lemon Bars

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by codeblusqrl

This is my grandmother's recipe. It brings back great memories whenever I think of them. She would pop these out of the freezer as soon as we came over and we'd dive into them! It's definitely not a diet food, which probably explains why I have never had a Lemon Bar match hers! They are truly the best!

They're different from the traditional Lemon Bar recepies but very good! I'll definately make these again!
