Lemon Squares

There is something about lemon in the summertime that is refreshing to me. I am not sure if it is the bright yellow color of the lemons or just the yummy citrus taste. I do truly love it. Anyway I was looking at Bakerella yesterday and saw her recipe for Lemon Squares. Straight away I thought I have to make these. I havent had Lemon Squares in FOREVER! Probably since I was a little girl. And I was certain my husband had never had them before being in the UK, which I was right about. So I whipped some up yesterday and thought I would share the recipe with you all!! Anyway ENJOY!
