Tangy Lemon Bars

Recipe by Deantini

These not-so-sweet bars are a nice change from the sweet treats and will stand out if placed with a selection of holiday cookies. Can be frozen for up to one month, if you are planning ahead.

Yum, so lemony! I skipped the icing sugar topping but otherwise follow the recipe. My family are pigs for treats, so no way did this make 40 bars, but it was much loved!
