How to Make the Perfect Lemon Bars

I had no idea I would like lemon bars. I am pretty much a chocolate purest, BUT then I made these Zesty Lemon Bars. The secret to making these lemon bars so good is in the crust. That's right, the crust!

First, be sure to use REAL BUTTER. Once the crust comes together, press it into a 13 x 9 pan. Then place the pan in the freezer. The crust needs to be in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. Then place the pan directly into the pre-heated oven.

This will make the most perfect, flaky, tasty crust! Don't believe me? Try it yourself!

This tip will also work when making pastry crust of any kind.
