Lemon Bars

Image: Lemon Bars by The Cookie Elf

Welcome springtime with Lemon Bars! This iconic combination of tart and sweet in one bar cookie is made up of a shortbread crust and soft lemon-flavored filling. The bars are also attractive. Yellow filling contrasts stands out against dusted white powdered sugar, making the bars an especially light treat in the spring or summer or as a contrast on a tray of assorted cookies.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Bake time: 35-40 minutes, divided
Makes about 36-45 triangular bars
