I think I have made hundreds of lemon bar recipe that always turned out horrible. With this recipe I have finally found the lemon bars that I have been craving. They are perfectly sweet with a hint of sour to them; infused with just the right amount of lemon flavor. I will use this recipe from here on out and would give it 5 stars.
