Ann set high expectations for this lemon bars recipe ... and they turned out every bit as good as she said! The shortbread crust is buttery with a creamy lemon center. The velvety frosting melts in your mouth. Perfectly sweet and tart, these lemon bars are a perfect after-dinner or brunch treat. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
