Lemon Cake Bars

A few weeks ago, I experimented with making some lemon brownies. They didn’t quite turn out as planned, but they still taste pretty good. They taste like a cross between a sugar cookie and a cake. I just love that they are super easy to make.

I recently picked up some lemons from my mom’s garden so I’ll have to work again on creating the brownie recipe and some other lemon treats. I really love the bright yellow color of these bars.
