These are wonderful! The vanilla chips add a nice touch! The recipe comes from the Hershey's Homemade cookbook.

This recipe makes a very good *mild* lemon bar. I have to say that when I tried them the first day, I thought they were just "ok". The next day I had one and they were much better, everything came together and the chips were solid again. I would suggest making these a day in advance to let the flavors develop. The only problem I had with these was that they stuck horribly to the pans (I made two batches). I will grease the pan next time, especially around the corners! Note: They came out of the glass pan better than the non-stick! Thanks for sharing this recipe :)
