Lemon Squares

These lemon squares are so good, they won’t last long. If you want a thicker lemon square, bake them in an eight by eight pan for 20 minutes, rather then 25 minutes. I used a nine by nine-inch pan so they didn’t bake as long. This recipe makes about 16 lemon squares. If you like lemon sweets, try out these Lavish Lemon Pancakes.
