Lemon Bars

 Sweet and tangy that's what I love about lemon bar.


Actually, I love lemon, its fragrance and taste, and if you remember one of my all time favourite dessert is lemon meringue pie ^^. Lemon is the best when it comes with richness from butter (and cream)  and sweetness from sugar.
Lemon bar is easier to make than meringue pie, for me it's meringue pie in simpler form. The icing sugar adds more sweetness (well the same as meringue), but it depends on your taste, you can skip it if you think your lemon bar is sweet enough.
With its sweet and tangy taste serve it with a cut of hot tea is my best option.
