Frozen Lemon Bars

When it comes to cool summer desserts, it doesn’t get much easier than these Frozen Lemon Bars. These bars are cool and creamy with a hint of tart lemon and they’re perfect for those hot summer days. This is one of those desserts that you don’t have to fuss over, but everyone loves it. And since it goes in the freezer, it’s a great dessert for making ahead of time.

Just be sure to let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes before slicing and serving. If you’d rather make a smaller version, half the recipe and freeze it in a graham cracker pie crust.
