Well hello there, sunshine.
I have such a treat for you. The last time I shared something involving lemons it was savory. Yes, it was a pizza, and I know some of you turn your noses up to the tart little things, but I happen to have an affinity for them. I ♥ lemons.
And they love me, I just know it. Don’t hate. Oh, let me tell you a story real fast. (don’t let me lose you here – the word “hate” made me think of this) Whenever one of my kids- 14 and 16 – throws out “I hate (example) green beans” my husband always comes back with…
“Oh, wait… I just got a phone call! It’s green beans. They said they don’t really like you either.”
Yes, my Mark is a little corny but so sweet. I call him Sparky when we go on vacation.
Had to throw that in there.
So, anyway, one morning a while back I noticed I had several lemons that were threatening to get all old and shrively, so I obviously had to do something. I had to save them. I know, I’m so selfless.
Hence – These lemon tart squares. That means they are technically squares, but with a tart like consistency filling. The crust is made from Nilla Wafers, corn flakes and butter. Crazy – I know, right? But it works. I was actually very happy with the crust.
Refrigerate them for a couple of hours before serving.
Aren’t they pretty? These would be great for a baby shower, bridal tea, or a premenstrual binge.
