Cookie Friday: Palmer's Deli lemon bars
Happy Cookie Friday, everyone! It's 10 degrees outside today, so I wanted to bake something sunny to brighten the day. I love all the citrus fruits in the grocery stores right now. It's the perfect time of year to make lemon bars.
A popular lunchtime spot in Des Moines, Palmer's Deli, serves the best lemon bars. And they are very generous with their servings. I remembered seeing the recipe for Palmer's Deli lemon bars in the Des Moines Register a few months back, but the Register doesn't archive its stories for more than two weeks (boo!). But after a quick Google search, I found the recipe on the Midwest Living magazine website.
Let me tell you, these lemon bars were even better than I remembered! They have a great sugar-cookie-like crust and an almost pudding-like texture. Check out Midwest Living for a printable recipe. Enjoy!
