Memom’s Lemon Bars

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
Oh! such lemony goodness. Rich, buttery crust that’s oh-so-tender. I had forgotten all about these delicious treats until a new acquaintance of mine, Marymartha, visited our online recipe book and made them for herself. She wrote to tell me that they were gone in a matter of minutes, they were that good. So, I decided to make them this weekend.

The recipe came from my Grandmother, who we called “Memom” because my sister couldn’t manage “Grandma.” I don’t know where the original recipe came from or if she made it up herself. All I have is the hand-written recipe on a piece of plain white paper. I treasure it because it’s her handwriting.

The recipe can be found here.

I love how she wrote Good -Good! at the bottom. Yes, Memom, they surely are.

Here I am with my Grandmother circa 1959. I know, I look a little cranky, don’t I? I think I was squinting into the sun.

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
