Holiday Cookie Contest 2013 Luscious Lemon Bars bring us the perfect mixture of sour and sweet. The sour tangy flavor of fresh lemon paired with the sweet cookie crust, and melt-in-your-mouth powdered sugar topping, combine for the perfect citrus taste explosion. The gooey lemon custard on these bars is irresistible! Who doesn’t like lemons? Their bright sunny yellow color, and fresh clean scent remind us of summertime. Memories of sitting in the sunshine with a cold glass of lemonade, watching the puffy clouds float across the sky, tickle our minds. With the cold breath of winter breathing down on us, these lemon bars bring back a little bit of summer. Not only are these lemon bars beautiful to look at, they taste amazing, and make a wonderful presentation and/or gift for someone you love. My family has been gluten free for almost ten years now, and I have had to adapt our favorite recipes to accommodate our dietary needs. I have found using only the highest quality ingredients, like fresh squeezed lemon juice, real butter, and fresh organic eggs, make a wonderful end product. Through trial and error, I have come up with wonderful adaptations of old favorite recipes.
