Personal Notes:
A plate of lemon bars accompanied by a plate of chocolate chip cookies is one of the "Stewart staples" when feeding teens, hosting a casual dinner party or taking finger desserts to a gathering. These bars appear every February 22 for Leigh's birthday treat to take to school. The recipe came from Mrs. Whyte at Barb's recipe shower over 25 years ago and is now a family favorite of ours.
