Lemon Bars are a dessert that bring me back to childhood. I would always beg one of my mom's friends to bring them to our weekend barbecues. I love how they are the perfect combination of tart and sweet and are supported by a crumbly thin crust. While I patiently wait for our lemon tree to fruit, I thought that I would whip up this old childhood favorite, but with a twist. I used this recipe for lemon bars with brown butter shortbread crust and were absolutely delicious. These delightful lemon squares are perfect for a summer picnic.
