Luscious Lemon Bars 38


Whenever I think of lemon bars, I think of my mom.  I don’t know why.  It is a summery treat with that hint of sweetness and the kick of citrus.  The shortbread crust is just the right combination.

This recipe comes from the Lion House Cookbook.  The Lion House is a landmark in Salt Lake City built by Brigham Young for his family.  Presently, it holds the Lion House Pantry, which offers a variety of wonderful foods if you are visiting Salt Lake City. Their menu changes daily and their pies and cheesecakes are to die for!  I can never resist them.
