I Never Met a Lemon Bar I Didn’t Like

That said, there are definitely some lemon bar recipes that are better than others.

I am always looking for the perfect combination of crumbly shortbread crust and just-tart-enough filling. Well, my search for the perfect recipe just came to an end. While perusing the frozen dessert section of Trader Joe’s the other day, I noticed a sweet little package of lemon bars. Hmmm, I thought. I should try these. Am I glad I did! They are delicious—not too tart, not too sweet, not too crumbly, not too sticky, and not too many calories either.  Just 80 per serving, made with natural ingredients.

Not only are these bars fully baked and pre-cut, they are adorable and look completely homemade. And they pass the taste test! Try them, you will not be disappointed.

These bars would make a perfect Easter dessert. For a pretty presentation, arrange them on a flat white plate and garnish with small blossoms of pansies or johnny-jump-ups. Sweet!

    Love TJ’s lemon bars – a recent discovery for me. I really like your ideas for adorning with flower petals. I’ll have to try that! Thank you for the post!

    Another favorite in our family is this one from my husband’s childhood cookbook (for those of us poor souls with no Trader Joe’s): http://www.stuckinthe70s.com/images/lemonsquares.jpg

    Heather,
    Just as soon as I can get to Trader Joe’s I’m going to get some Lemon Squares. there is one down on 14th St. As you remember, “Anything cooked within a six block radius is home cooking.”
    Where is your chowder recipe?

    Great to hear from you,
    ML
