Yummy Mummy Monday: Lemon Squares

I have to thank my friend Celine for this recipe. She kindly brought these citrus-y delights as dessert one night and it’s safe to say they were a hit! (My sister in law made a special request I get the recipe and include them in my Christmas baking!) I love that these yummy treats are not only really simple to bake, but they satisfy your sweet tooth with a zing! I hope you love them as much as I do!
