Lemon Bars, from a variety of sources, in all of their tart, creamy, sugary, crusty, lick-your-sticky fingertips goodness.
Quite Possibly the Best Lemon Squares Ever, from Anna Ginsberg of Cookie Madness and winner of the 2006 $1 million Pillsbury Bake-Off (thanks for the link, Trish!)

Lemon Shortbread Bars from December 2006 Fine Cooking magazine
(they usually don’t post free recipes on their website – you have to have a membership – so this one is a BONUS!)
Perfect Lemon Bars from Cook’s Illustrated
Cook’s Illustrated operates the same way as Fine Cooking; they want you to buy a membership to access their recipes online. Click here for a free trial membership to their website, if you have, like, morals and stuff…or click here if you are feeling like a rebel and want the no-strings-attached version. I won’t tell if you won’t.)
By the way, if you’ve never read Cook’s Illustrated, I recommend trying it, at least once. The detail can sometimes be overwhelming, but they really go into the science (and testing) of why a recipe works well and work to create the very best version of whatever dish they are making. It’s like a less-humorous Alton Brown on steroids, but the recipes are sure-fire, never-fail winners.
