Earlier this week I had the most intense cravings for lemon bars. Springtime always has me craving lemony treats, and lemon bars seemed like the perfect way to get my fix. And then I realized I don’t have a traditional lemon bar recipe! I have a recipe for lemon coconut bars and brûléed meyer lemon bars, but not the classic. Time to fix that!

I consulted a few sources, did a lot of test baking, and ended up with these simple but luscious lemon bars that I can’t get enough of. These bars have a tender buttery crust and the lemon filling is silky and tart. You won’t find a better lemon bar!
