These lemon bars are a staple at my house. I'm not a huge chocolate lover (I know, I know) so I would have these over brownies any day of the week. I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand so they are easy to make. Just be sure to leave enough time for them to cool, at least a few hours.
If you have made Lemon Bars from a box and liked them, give these a try. There really is NO comparison!
