Lemon bars. The tangy, sweet, summer favorite. Yumm-o! This recipe has been tinkered and tailored just to the perfect amount of tang. I like a tangy lemon bar vs. a super sweet one. What say you? Are you on the tangy side too? Let me know in the comments. I hope you’ll enjoy this easy dish as much as I do. Photo guide and recipe below.
