Zesty Lemon Bars

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Matthew Molus

These are some of the best lemon bars I have ever tasted. No one can eat just one. If cut into one inch squares, one serving would be about 4 of them.

I love this recipe! It's an Ellen Straine recipe from when she was with Food Network . http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/calling-all-cooks/lemon-bars-recipe/index.html Or at least that's where I got it. Glad it's on Zaar. Best ever!
