      These look delicious. My grandmother makes a yummy batch of lemon bars but I have never thought to get the recipe to try them out myself. So thanks for sharing - will have to add these to my baking list this summer!

      The last time I had lemon squares they were awful! Apparently the person making them had no clue how to. I wanted to try them for myself but never got the chance or the recipe. I might just try your recipe to see if I can do better.
