Strawberry Lemonade Bars

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by brigs03

These bars are a twist on the classic lemon bar by adding fresh strawberry puree. I love nothing more in the summer than a glass of fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade - except maybe these bars. Thank you Pinterest for pointing me to this reciep from the kandktestkitchen.com blog!

Lovely bar recipe. I would like to offer up, that it took 3 lemons to end up with 1 cup of juice and about 1 cup of whole berries to yield the half cup of puree. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag game. :)
