Graham Moist Lemon Bars

Rating: Unrated
When my brother about broke his teeth on the crust of some lemon bars, I thought I would try to make them chewier with graham cracker crumbs as the crust.

Lemon Curd Bars with Coconut

Rating: Unrated
This bar has the two crusts as requested, and has a strong tangy lemon taste, so much better than most of the lemon bar recipes out there due to the lemon curd and added coconut!

Tart Lemon Triangles

This is a lovely conclusion to an elegant spring dinner! I garnish them with whipped cream, a strawberry fan and a sprig of mint.

This delicate treat is made with fresh lemon and confectioners' sugar. Wonderful with tea.

Lavender Lemon Bars

Rating: Unrated
I'm totally addicted to using lavender as flavoring. If you think it sounds weird, may I suggest not knocking it like I did until you try it.

Annemarie's Lemon Bars

Annemarie is a German lady I met over 20 years ago, when we were living in Indiana. Talk about a good cook!

Lemon Pie Bars

Rating: Unrated
This is a really easy recipe that my mom made before the lemon bar 'rage' was on! Thick-skinned lemons work the best. I suggest using real butter and eggs, I've tried using eggbeaters--nowhere near as good!

Lemon Cream Cheese Bars

Rating: Unrated
Nothing brings a recipe to life like fresh lemons! For a change of pace from the standard Southern-style lemon bars, you need to look no further! This recipe is easy and the taste is divine. I have also made this with Splenda® and low-fat cream cheese and they were just as wonderful.

Chef John's Lemon Bars

Rating: Unrated
This is one of my favorite cookies of all time, although technically they're closer to a pie than a cookie. Nothing prepares you for that intense, awesome sweet-tart lemon flavor and custard, perfectly contrasted against that crisp, sweet buttery shortbread cookie.
