LEMON BARS (The grab them fast or too bad for you bars)
The first time I made them was as a treat for my husband and daughter who were going to be out into the wee hours running their paper route. They smelled sooo good while baking; but I went to bed without eating one. Too bad for me! Pan was empty when I got up! Live and learn.
*** This looks just like my bars, but the photo is from the internet.
