Lemon Bars with White Chocolate Lemon Crust

Lemon Bars 3

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. It’s that time of year again, I sent my babies back to school today. I’ve been watching all you mom’s via Facebook, Twitter and blogs sending your little ones back to school for the past month and finally today it was my turn. Almost cried, but I held it back. Figured they are getting older and I can save my tears for when the little princess starts school. Luckily she’s stuck with mom for another few years. Since I’m sharing a lovely Lemon recipe today I can still pretend that it’s still summer right?

Lemon Bar Package
o I was just perusing my local Walmart aisles like I do pretty much on a weekly basis and I came across this beautiful gem. I knew I had to have it. I hadn’t made anything with lemon all summer and I knew I had to make something or I’d never forgive myself. I love some of the flavor combinations that you see these days. But I absolutely love adding white chocolate chips to cookies, it has slowly become my signature. This pack comprises the crust to my lemon bars. Yup, you heard that right! Lemon cookie crust and lemon bars, is that enough to make your mouth water yet?

Lemon Bar Crust
See look at that crust, yum! I suppose you could substitute the cookie crust for the original shortbread but who would want to. Stick this bad boy in the over for a bit to crisp it up and top with a lemon custardy filling and bake again. This was mom and kid approved. Do you guys have your favorite lemon desserts? I am a big sucker for Lemon Poppyseed Bread. My husband has an aversion to poppyseeds for some reason, don’t ask me why but he refuses to eat anything with poppyseeds. Needless to say I dont get to make it so often.

So who say’s that now since it’s technically after Labor Day that I have to stop making Summery treats? I absolutely adore my pumpkin recipes but I’m not ready to let go of summer just yet! Soon enough you’ll be seeing some awesome fall recipes being posts, I have been starting to stock up, but as for now you’ll have to bear with me on my still stuck on summer addiction!

Recipe Notes

These bars are gooey so we like to refrigerate ours before serving to make it easier to slice. Baking times are subject to oven temps. This may require extra baking for center to set.
