With summer upcoming, more fresh fruits are available for desserts. Although it’s peak season is not during the summer, one fruit that fits this taste is lemons. Most citrus fruits peak season is November through April. However, lemons help bring a fresh taste that reminds many of summer. A great dessert for this would be lemon bars. Lemon bars provide a sweet, slightly sour taste. Also, this dessert is one of the easiest desserts that can be made. 

Along with the easy directions to follow for this recipe, the ingredient list is also short as well. The ingredient list is only eight ingredients, and those ingredients are extremely simple too. The ingredients include flour, powdered sugar, salt, unsalted butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, and eggs. With lemon bars, there are two parts. First, there is the crust of the bar. Then, on top of the bar, there is the lemon filling. Although there is both lemon juice and lemon zest in the filling, it is not sour. Instead, it provides the sweet flavor of a lemon. The dessert provides a delicious yet very refreshing taste. These desserts are also very easy for any event. They are usually cut with small squares which are easy for others to consume.
