Realemon Lemon Squares

Total Time

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!

Thanks for posting this! My mom also used this recipe, but her Realemon recipe has been lost for years. These truly are the best lemon bars out there!
