There just isn’t a comparison to Lemon Bars at our house. It is the ultimate in cookie perfection. The only downside is cutting and serving them so they look as good as they taste. We were looking for an easy-to-serve lemon bar - and when we saw this idea, we had to try it. Perfection - simplified.

so they look as perfect as these? Delicious, but temperamental!
My daughters & daughters-in-law put together a baby shower last weekend for my daughter Melyn. They were hoping to find a few bite-size treats to go along with a main dish salad, rolls, and other shower-fare. Hands down - their favorite cookie is the traditional Lemon Bar. But as much as we enjoy them, they are a bit of a challenge to get out of the pan in one piece to look beautiful on a serving platter.

that helps form mini tarts in a mini-cupcake pan.

can do the same job easily.
