I don’t think there is any better way to enjoy spring and summer than with a plate of lemon bars. Since it feels like spring or summer most of the year in California, lemon bars are frequent flyers in my house. I’m definitely not complaining about that!
Friends, lemon is one of my favorite citrus fruits!
I really love everything about them: their shape, scent, texture, color, and most especially how versatile these little things are. Gimme me all the lemons in every way imaginable! I’ve even started to grow my own little lemon tree! Wish me luck!!
Have you ever used lemon infused olive oil? If not, I highly recommend doing so. It really adds a brightness and zesty dimension to your dishes.

Let’s look at the star players in this recipe!
Ingredients for Easy Lemon Bars:
Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough: This is probably my favorite hack in this recipe.
Using pre-made sugar cookie dough is the way to go. Doesn’t matter which brand you use in this recipe, so go ahead and use your favorite!
Lemon Curd: Nothing compares to homemade lemon curd. Am I right?
Sure, an hour or two could be spent preparing homemade lemon curd. But honestly, I’d rather spend that time eating these easy lemon bars.
Bring in store-bought lemon curd. It has the perfect amount of sweet and tart. Perfect for lemon bars.
Fresh Berries: The perfect topping for these lemon bars. Use whatever is in season where you live.
Try different combinations, too! Add a slice of mango, pineapple, and kiwi for a tropical lemon bar. Or top with a boysenberry and an orange segment for an exquisite burst of flavor.
Use your imagination! The possibilities are endless!
Share these satisfying lemon bars any chance you get! It’s such a good lemon recipe and is so easy to make, not mention delicious, too!
