These are also know as: Dad-Can't-Get-enough-of-those-Lemon Bars!
My Dad's Favorite Sweet. He would always request these whenever I came home. I think this is where I got my love of Lemon. And let me tell you, any "trait" I may be blessed to get or have that is from my Dad has got to be GOOD! He is such a wonderful example of a person that NEVER judges. (well not counting the times he checked my ears to see how many "holes in my head" I recently had) My dad is someone I will always try to impress.I Love you Dad!
