Martha Stewart Lemon Squares


Normally, I'll pick out a chocolate dessert over a fruit-based one, but I had recently bought a bag of Meyer lemons on sale at Whole Foods and no idea what to do with them, haha.  I found this recipe for Lemon Squares in the Martha Stewart Cookies book, and figured it was a great chance to use a few lemons up!

Since I don't have a juicer, the most time consuming portion of this recipe was actually manually juicing the lemons.  However, the rest of the recipe was easy.  Just remember that since you have to chill the crust before baking it, the recipe doesn't come together as quickly as a regular bar cookie.  

Overall, the use of Meyer lemons made these much more sweet than regular lemon bars, so keep that in mind if you're looking for a sweet bar, or a really tart, "real" lemon flavor from using regular lemons.  They are v. pretty in person and were a big hit at work!
