Realemon Lemon Squares

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Heirloom

I absolutely adore lemon bars, but unfortunately most recipes are super sweet with a fake lemony flavor. This recipe, from my mother's Realemon Recipe book, is a sweet-tart version of lemon squares. In my opinion, you can't get better than this.

These little gems are very good! I had lost the recipe years ago and am very happy to see it posted. I had to reduce oven temp. and timing slightly as I used glass cookware and my older oven demands it, lol! Thank you for posting a favourite that doesn't always use chocolate!
