Do you read David Lebovitz’s blog? If not, you should!
I made his whole lemon bars last night and they are amazing! Definitely the best lemon bars I’ve ever had.
I got a vegetable mystery box from my CSA on Thursday and picked up a bag of organic lemons they were offering as well.
When David Lebovitz posted the lemon bars recipe the same day, I knew it was fate that I make them.
His recipe is perfect as is, I made no adjustments. If you want to make them too, go to David’s post for the recipe: Whole Lemon Bars
My friend Maura made these at my suggestion and found them to be too bitter after using the whole lemon (pith included). I would just suggest not to use a lemon with too thick of a rind on it. The one I used was fairly thin skinned. The thickness on individual lemons can really vary. If you have a thick one, just use the zest and pulp of the lemon and discard most of the pith.
