Pink Lady Squares

"This is another of our family favorites that makes for an excellent addition to the serving tray. Looks very appealing on the holiday platter and great for special occasions. I often substitute the graham crumbs with crushed Nillas. Just as good untinted - but as my mom reminds me " always make the icing using the juice from a real lemon" - realemon will work but she's right ... that lemon juice makes for awesome!"

    These are delicious but much gooey-er than I expected from the first picture. I should have scrolled through the rest as they are obviously gooey! I also used some coconut on top to prevent plastic wrap from sticking to the bars. When making the base, I added 2 extra tablespoons of butter to help my store bought graham cracker crumbs to stick together. I still had a little crumbliness, but not as back as I feared. I made these for breast cancer 50 Shades of Pink Bake Sale.
