What desserts remind you of springtime? Most people would say lemony ones. And I agree.
One of my favorite desserts to make is lemon bars. They’re a crowd pleaser, and a little goes a long way…one small bar is like a big burst of springtime in your mouth. Plus, they’re pretty! 🙂 It’s such a simple and easy sweet treat to make, and the ingredients are usually on hand.
Make these for your Mom this weekend – she’ll love you even more than she does today.
And of course, one last reminder – please check out the goodies up for auction on Bloggers Bake For Hope and bid before Midnight tonight. Get some sweet treats delivered right to your doorstep while helping a GREAT cause!

In another bowl, combine remaining flour and sugar. Whisk in eggs and lemon juice. Pour over the baked crust. Bake for another 20 minutes.
