To me the best lemon bar must consist of a tender, buttery crust and a soft, intensely lemony filling. One other thing…it must be simple to make. In this week’s USA Weekend video, we demonstrate our perfect recipe for these irresistible sweet treats.

With Easter, Mother’s Day, picnics and parties coming up, keep this recipe in your back pocket. It’s a simple and delicious dessert to serve up at your place or pack and bring to a friend’s.

Happy baking!
