Strawberry Lemon Bars

Who is over winter like I am!? Ugh, I’m so ready for spring to be here and stay. We have been teased a lot this winter with one day it can be super nice and warm and then the next day winter comes back in full force.

So I thought, I would keep spring alive at least inside today by making these delicious Strawberry Lemon Bars. If you have followed my blog for a while now you know that I love love LOVE anything lemon, especially my favorite Lemon Pie Bars.

But these Strawberry Lemon Bars might be my new favorite! To make these bars I used my all-time favorite Krusteaz™ Meyer Lemon Bar Mix which makes these bars super simple and quick to make. All you need is the lemon mix and some fresh strawberries. And to make these Strawberry Lemon Bars extra delicious and lemon-y, I topped them with my favorite lemon buttercream frosting.

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

LINE YOUR BAKING PAN: To make it super easy for you to cut these lemon bars into squares, line your 13×9 inch baking pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough overhang on the sides and spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Once the bars have cooled lift the bars out of the pan, folding down the aluminum foil sides.

 FROSTING: For the lemon buttercream frosting, I recommend using heavy whipping cream because it gives the frosting that thick, creamy, texture that everyone loves. But if you don’t have heavy whipping cream, you can use milk but just note that your frosting might not be as thick.

CUTTING BARS INTO SQUARES: The secret to cutting these bars into perfect squares is to use a plastic knife or a silicone spatula because they don’t have sharp edges for the lemon bars to stick to, so they cut more smoothly. Also, make sure that the bars are COMPLETLY COOLED before cutting.
