This yummy recipe is so easy, it is one of the first recipes my kids learned to cook. Even my husband, a total non-cook, will offer to prepare a batch of lemon bars. The results are always perfect!

really good, I love lemon bars, almost tastes like my mom's. the only thing i would do different is maybe add some lemon juice to the crust also, because the crust is a little bland.
