Weekend Baking: Lemon Bars

I’m so glad I installed my air conditioner this weekend because Boston has been hot, hot, hot with temps around 90F.  Other than brainstorming new ways to keep cool, I was busy in my kitchen...

I was craving something citrus-y, other than mango/tangerine sorbet by Double Rainbow that I am completely addicted to!  I came across this recipe (via TasteSpotting) for lemon squares.  Although I'd never made them before, it was pretty simple (hardest part is juicing so many lemons).  They have just the right amount of sweet and tart in them.  Added bonus: your hands smell like fresh lemons for the rest of the day!
