I have always loved Lemon Bars, I often made them during Christmas. America, has recital on Thursday,
May 27, 2019. She plays beautifully. I'm so proud of her. I looked high n low for this recipe, only
to be told by her mommy that she was going to purchase the cookies. My place is to respect her
desire, after all she is the mommy. I'll just have to make them some other day, when she can help.
Love that little girl so much.
