Meyer Lemon Bars

We left sunny southern California and returned to Utah snow.

In fact, I think we brought the bad weather with us {and an endless supply of dirty laundry}.  The last two days we were there were gloomy.  I guess we figured we would bring a little souvenir home with us in the form of bad weather.

I also snuck a few souvenirs from my parents Meyer lemon tree.

Every girl should be so lucky.

If it were up to me the only souvenir that would have come with us were the lemons but you know the phrase, “when life gives you lemons…you make lemonade.”

Next best thing?  Lemon bars.  Or maybe better.

Yep.  So much better.


  1. Mmm, I can taste them now – so fresh and bright!

  2. I love lemon bars and with Meyer lemons? Yum!

  3. Jennifer | Mother Thyme says:

    These look delicious! I have made lemon bars before but never with Meyer lemons. Definitely need to try this!

  4. That’s the one thing I miss about living in Southern California–all the fresh citrus fruit! These look absolutely amazing!

  5. I love lemon bars! Your parents are so lucky to have a Meyer Lemon tree!

  6. Can you believe I’ve never made lemon bars before? I’ve always wanted to but I just never got around to it. I think I’ll start with this recipe.

    Oh and when I get a house, the first thing I’ll have to do is to get a Meyer lemon tree 🙂
