Lemon Bars

Who doesn’t love lemon bars? They’re the perfect combination of tangy and sweet with a delicious buttery crust. I made these for my birthday party using a recipe from Bakerella. It was a very simple and easy recipe to follow and turned out delicious! Lemon bars are always a nice escape from chocolate. A sprinkling of powdered sugar made them beautiful!
