When the Color of Summer is Lemon – GOOEY LEMON SQUARE’S

lemon squares

It’s that time of year again, Summer’s here and going away
So, cut the fruits and butter the pans, lemon is this season’s plan
Prep the oven’s, mittens on. Its time to bake from sun to dawn.

Summer always seems to make me put my baking shoes on. It’s the season of Pies and Cookies, Apple crumble and this recipe of Lemon Squares. I have never been able to make the perfect batch of lemon squares until now where I can proudly say that the filling is perfectly gooey and the crust buttery and crumbly. Results that I have achieved after a number of additions and subtraction from all the recipes I have used in the past. I am proud to say I have finally found the perfect balance of flavor and consistency in these BawaLiciousDelicious Lemon Squares.
