Eat Sweet Fridays: Lemon Squares


We are starting a new series over here at Live Sweet called Eat Sweet Fridays! I’m super excited about this one as I love sweets and trying new recipes and sharing it all with you! This is seriously like the perfect series for me and  I was so excited when I thought of it the other day! What a perfect combination Sweets and Fridays, a great start to the weekend right!?! So now every Friday you can come here for a fun new and usually pretty or cute recipe! Sometimes I will make the recipe and get to share with you first hand how fabulous it is and other times I will share with you something I found online and loved and knew I must pass it along to you because obviously you would love it too! I am hoping that this will encourage me to broaden my baking horizons a bit and try lots of new recipes to show off here. I tend to find things I like and then stick with them which can be good but I know I also need to keeping trying new things to continue to add to my favorites.


This recipe is one that was passed down from my Grandma Bonnice. My Grandma Bonnice was a wonderful cook and got such joy out of preparing meals and sweets for all of her family, I do not get my cooking skills from her because lets face it I have none, but I do love to bake and share my tasty treats with all of my family and friends so I like to think that came from her!  She always had something delicious waiting for her grandchildren every time we arrived for a visit and now I love preparing special sweets whenever I know someone will be stopping by, there is something that makes my heart so happy when someone I love enjoys one of my tasty treats!

These are so easy to make, take very few ingredients and make for a pretty plate of sweets! I always think of them as a spring treat and tend to make them most around this time of year but they of course are always tasty if you need something quick to prepare. I think they would be perfect for Easter brunch, maybe I will have to make them again for my family then!
