The Best Lemon Bars
March 29, 2013

With nearly 1,000 reviews, I don't know that I'm adding much, but these are my favorite dessert to make for myself, throwing parties, and to bring to events. I make three minor adjustments based on other reviews: add 1/4 tsp salt to crust; use 2/3 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (more precise than measuring by number of lemons); add 1 Tbsp flour to custard because of extra juice. The result: perfection. Everyone loves them, everyone asks for my recipe, and friends give me lemons from their trees because they want lemon bars in return. I really can't say enough good things about these.
